Printing XML reports
I need to convert some XML documents into PDF. The documents contain financial reports. Currently, the XML docs are converted into HTML tables for display on browsers. My problem is that the HTML tables don't print well (i.e., report headings and column headings don't appear at the top of each page, a row is split between two pages, etc.). I know that I can convert the XML reports to FO documents and use an FO processor (e.g., FOP, FO2PDF, etc.) to convert them to PDF files. Has anyone had success doing this? Do these FO processors run fast enough, so that my web server can can convert the XML reports to PDF on demand? Does anyone know of an easier way to print these reports? For example, are there any good tools that convert HTML to PDF and that place the table headers/footers (i.e., the THEAD and TFOOT elements) at the top/bottom of each page? Many thanks in advance.
