Preface

Since XMLMill for Domino was released, we received many questions regarding the use of XMLMill in a R5, R6 or R7 environment. In order to address some of these questions we will present 4 use cases with different focus:

  1. On-the-fly creation of a PDF from a Web- or Notes-client (R6/R7 only)
  2. Create a PDF with bookmarks and a table of content based on a Notes-view using XMLMill as a batch-procedure (R5, R6 and R7)
  3. Create different invoice PDF's based on a Notes-view per customer using XMLMill as a batch-procedure (R5, R6 and R7)
  4. Create different reminder PDF's per customer based on a Notes-view using XMLMill as a batch-procedure (R5, R6 and R7)

All 4 use cases originate from real-life questions we got from users. They are built in such a way that a Notes-developer with average knowledge of lotus script is able to apply them in his or her real-life situation. However in order to transform XML-data into a PDF with XMLMill, a developer needs to write an XSLT-stylesheet. You can use the XSLT-examples, included in the download and modify them to your own needs. If you feel you have not enough experience in writing an XSLT-stylesheet, you can present us your case, the desired PDF lay-out and we can make an offer to do this for you.

You can find all the material for these 4 use cases if you download a trial version of "XMLMill for Domino". You can find this trial version on the Download section of the XMLMill-website. Once you have unzipped the trial version you can find this PDF DUseCases.PDF and the Notes-database UseCases.nsf in the subdirectory domino/usecases.

If you are interested in just 1 use case, you can skip the others and jump to it immediately. In the use cases we do not build on the previous ones. We simply start from scratch in every use case.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to send a mail to support@xmlmill.com.

Remark:

This document is completely generated with XMLMill 1.40 using DUsesCases.xml and DUseCases.xsl. These files can be found in the subdirectory domino/usecases if you have downloaded the trial version of "XMLMill for Domino". You can find this trial version on the Download section of the XMLMill-website
