We just released our latest member of the family of word processing components: LiveDocx!
LiveDocx enables developers - using any programming language - to
merge MS Word compatible word processing templates with any type of textual data. The
resulting word processing document can be saved as a DOCX, DOC, RTF or
Adobe PDF file.
This kind of functionality is useful when - for example - you wish to generate invoices from a web-site store or to create documents in a SOA environment.
In such application, a template, which stores the layout of the
invoice can be generated in Microsoft Word or Open Office. A developer
can then pass the data, which should appear in the invoice, to
LiveDocx. On invoking the SOAP based service, the developer receives
back a word processing document in the specified format (commonly PDF).
