The software is a viewer for MS Visio documents in XML format, in which
all the functions are coded in Java language so that the software is platform
independent, and are encapsulated into a component so that the software
can easily be integrated with any other Java-based application.
Of course, by adding some appropriate controlling functions and input/output interfaces,
the component can also be programmed as an individual application which
serves as a pure Viewer for MS Visio XML Documents, in a platform-independent way.

Universal VisioViewer mainly consists of 5 parts:
- A Parser for Visio XML documents. Based on the XML Schema for MS Visio,
it can read and analyze the components and objects in a Visio XML document;
- A Convertor. By abandoning some components and objects in a Visio document
which are generally unuseful for the output processing such as the ICON objects, and by carrying on
other converting tasks to reduce the depth of document tree, the convertor can generate a new document
with the compressed size, improved parsing efficiency, and enhanced convenience for dispatching
and delivering on the network, compared to the original document;
- A Library which encapsulates the necessary meta-graph objects.
The Objects in the library are corresponding with those in the original Visio document structure,
but are reconstructed with Java.
- A Palette Library which encapsulates the objects to carry out the
output processing for different devices, such as screen, printer or plotter, and other objects
to make some transformation such as drag & drop, translation, rotation, shear, zooming and symmetric.
- An Interface Repository, which includes the document-interface objects, event-interface objects,
coordinates-interface objects and palette-interface objects. They can be used to realize the
integration with other Java-based applications. The software can be used in two ways.
Firstly, the component of this software can be embedded into other Java-based applications.
