With Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) 2.1.1, we can render mathematical equations in Word and PDF documents. RPE expects input to be MathML format to be able it to render them. See examples of mathematical equations in MathML format at MathJax. Microsoft Word DOCX format has built-in support for math equations (through MathML) with an equations editor to create and modify equations.
- Syntax coloring: For any programming language, syntax coloring is a must.
- Line marking: The line containing the cursor has a line marking.
As you might of RPE being available on jazz dot net, we’ve started blogging RPE related topics more on jazz dot net blog. You could search the blog with tags like rpe, document generation, studio, etc.

If you notice “Data Source Configuration conflict detected” error in problems view upon opening a template in RPE studio, you should fix it immediately to avoid undesired results. The document generation might go through successfully for some case. However, for some cases the document generation could fail as well.
The data source configuration conflict happens when you use a schema normally and then use the same schema to configure the DSC element as in the below screen capture.
How to fix the conflict
Duplicate the conflicting schema either by using “Duplicate Schema” option from the outline. If the duplicate option is not available, go through the normal Add Schema operation to add the schema with a different name again.
Once the schema is duplicated as _resources (or any unique name), use this schema to configure the DSC element and make sure to configure rest of the properties like URL, inherited data source, etc for the DSC element as earlier.
After you fix the issue, re-opening the same template should NOT result in “Data Source Configuration conflict detected” in the problems view.
In continuation to RPE 2.1.1 release, the team has recorded videos of some of the new features/enhancements from the release. These videos have the voice and caption to serve the purpose effectively.
RPE 2.1.1 has been made generally available today. We continued on the path we started in RPE 2.0 around simplifying the user experience with RPE. RPE 2.0, 2.0.1 focused on administrators and end users while RPE 2.1 focused on template designers. With 2.1.1, we continued focus on both template designers and report designers.
