Templates for PDF
iText strategies for the mass production of documents based on templates: two user stories presented by iText customers.
There are different ways to create high volumes of PDF:
- You can create the PDFs from scratch (the program is the template)
- You can fill out PDF forms based on AcroForm technology (the template is static)
- You can use an XML-based format as a template (XSL:FO, XHTML and CSS, custom XML)
- You can use a dynamic XFA form (the XML Forms Architecture)
In this session, we will give the floor to two of our customers, one that uses the core iText to create documents, one that uses XFA Worker, a tool built on top of iText.
Project for Governement: creating PDF using the XML Forms Architecture
By Pieter Robberechts, CSC
CSC has developed applications to automate Belgian Governmental tasks, more specifically Juridical tasks that are time consuming and error sensitive because of human input.
The fully automated 'E-griffie’ application renders juridical and legal forms, injecting XML into dynamic XFA templates that are then flattened into PDF/A documents using iText. Another application, JustX is an authentic Source Judgement Database to streamline information.
