    For SequenceViz, the next thing on the list was to export the SVG output to an image. I would like it to be included within the application but unfortunately I am unable to find a working implementation which I can use. (tried SVG# but didn't wok).


    There are few ways where you can take the generated SVG and convert it into a raster image manually. These options are described below:


    Please note that the SVG image of the diagram is generated to a file named Seq.svg before rendering in the browser control. So that is the file you should be converting.


    1) Apache Batik:

    Apache Batik is a wonder Java toolkit to manipulate SVG images and it does a lot more than that. See the website ( for more information. For our purpose, it includes a tool called SVG Rasterizer ( which can convert SVG file to a raster format.  There is sufficient information on the website to use that tool therefore I would recommened you to look at the above website.
