XMLMill for Domino
With XMLMill for Domino you can generate PDF documents from within your Notes web documents or Domino application.
A Lotus Script Programmer with a basic understanding of xml and xslt can use this generic solution in his own R5/R6/R7/R8 (web) applications without having to know any Java-programming.
If you are using Domino R5, you can only use XMLMill in batch, not online via your web-browser.
In Domino R6/R7/R8, you can use XMLMill online or in batch.
Following actions are possible on-line:
View a generated .pdf document on-line (the document is on-line generated based on the data in your document(s)).
Save a generated document on file-server (the location where to store the document and/or name of the .pdf file can dynamically be defined).
View and Save actions combined.
Execute a Lotus script (name of the Lotus script can be dynamically defined).
View and Execute actions combined (in this order).
Saveand Execute actions combined (in this order).
View, Save and Execute actions combined (in this order).
Please read Use case 1: On-the-fly creation of a PDF from a Web- or Notes-client (R6/R7/R8 only) in the UseCases document ( contained in the download - or on-line) to find out how to use the View,
Save and Execute actions.
In this Use case the Execute action is used to automatically mail a generated PDF document to recipients. This is just one example of how these actions can be combined to give you any result you want to achieve.
In batch following actions are possible:
Save generated document(s) on file-server (XMLMill is called using the command-line interface by passing the correct parameters).
The UseCases document ( contained in the download - or on-line) contains following use-cases showing how to use XMLMill in batch:

- Each generated PDF document will contain a header and footer marking the document as a document generated with a trial version of XMLMill.
- Each generated PDF document will only display the first 5 pages (although the document will have its full size).
- These limitations are removed when you buy the licensed version.
