Currently I have a requirement to send a PDF file to the legacy system. I'm not sure whether XI has the capability to do this. Appreciate if somebody could help me on this. The requirement is like from SAP we will send a data stream to XI and XI has to produced a form in PDF by populating the data on the PDF layout.
Appreciate if somebody have any experienced with this development can share with me.
U can use a Java Proxy to create the pdf file instead of relying upon File adapter to do this.
If you were to create a pdf using a file adapter, u should include some content conversion modules( i suppose you need to develop these) and then specify in the modules tab, before the callsapadapter module.
there's a number of command line tools
that you can trigger using the file adapter - command line paramater (even with "output format management" )
just go to google and you'll find many more:)
When the operating system command is called, the file name currently being processed can be specified with the following placeholders:
- %f (file name)
- %F(absolute file name including path)
