Server-based FO Processing

Post by bburns » Thu May 02, 2019 7:20 pm

We have a need to allow authors to generate PDFs with a server-based installment of RenderX. It looks like I would just add this using the External FO Processor Configuration box. Is this the right approach, or does Oxygen only support local instances of FO processors?

Hi Bill,

Our "External FO Processor Configuration" settings allow you to call a local script (bat or sh) and have that script generate the PDF.
So we do not have something especially for server side XSL-FO processing.
Maybe you could create an ANT transformation scenario in Oxygen which would call an ANT build file which could upload the XML content on the server and then download the PDF placing it in an output folder.

Regards,
Radu
