HOW TO CONVERT XML TO PDF?

To understand how XML is converted to any of the supported file formats, you must understand that XML (eXtensible Markup Language) contains primarily data.

Therefore, in order to generate PDF, you will first have to define a layout template. The template describes how this data will be presented into a human readable format

The template also contains a set of rules that apply when generating the output, such as fields, dynamic tables, conditions or conditional expressions.

Once you have designed your template, you can then use the Ecrion API to generate PDF, Word or even interactive HTML5 documents.

Ecrion provides a truly enterprise solution, suitable for the most complex business uses while providing and easy to use environments available today. Click Play for a quick introduction.

Business-Critical Document Production

Ecrion can help your enterprise deliver the business-critical documents that your organization needs.  

The solution provides comprehensive document automation features. In addition, the solution has the ability to produce high-volumes in a clustered environment with no single point of failure. Running post processing steps and orchestrating delivery for multiple devices and channels is available.

Document packages can be produced as part of post-processing steps using document assembly routines. You can merge multiple file formats (for example Word Documents and XML files) from multiple sources, apply consistent headers and footers and more. Ecrion has designed the DAL (Digital Assembly Line), an XML format specialized entirely for this purpose.
