I am using a servlet running under Apache/JServ 1.1.1 (a bit oldie, but it is
ok) with Xalan / FOP to the which I pass parameters to select the xsl file that
contains the FOP transformation rules to apply the xml file to transform (could
be built from a database extract). Then I use the PDF rendering mechanism of FOP
and output the PDF byte code to the HTTP response with the mime type
application/pdf. And that works just fine.
I am sure you could apply this strategy into any servlet environment without
having to rely on apache / cocoon.

Subject: XML TO PDF
I have two questions regarding transforming XML to PDF.
1. I get data from db2 as xml format. This file has different templates in it.
When I transform this to pdf, I am getting error at FOP rendering because the
xsl file does not just choose the template I specify. It picks up all the data
from the file. This causes fop to error out. The e sample xml file is given
below. Can someone help me figure out how to select only one template at a time
with out parsing the xml file to break it into different files.
(See attached file: out.xml)(See attached file: obf_dl_form.xsl) In the xls
file, I need to select only "DL" but it brings the values of fields from DSR and
2. How can I run XALAN and FOP interactively from a web page rather than a
batch process? I do not want to use cocoon? Is there another way? I am
thinking of using Class and method.invoke to invoke the commands.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
