You can now post XML data via HTTP to the Transaction Processor. Ensure that the application posting the data includes a contentType (also referred to as MimeType or EncodingType) of "text/xml".
Ensure the XML is well formed, for example:
When using Active Server Pages (ASP) with Web Output Pak on Windows, you may need to modify the security parameters for your temporary directory's access privileges. This directory could be \tmp, \temp or Windows\Temp.
When trying to process the ASP sample with Web Output Pack the following error is returned:
The following error occurred in step 1:
Operation returned exit status 153
The resolve this problem you must ensure that you give the IUSR_Computer and IWAN_Computer administrative privileges.
Commands other than ^field cannot be passed when using the Transaction Processor with the data DOM. This is as designed. When using the Transaction Processor with the data DOM, only ^field commands can be passed. Any other Dynamic Merge commands, such as ^form or ^global, will be stripped out of the data passed to Print Agent for processing.
If you need to use global fields, you can get that functionality by setting the global attribute for the field. You do this in the template by accessing the Format Field dialog and setting the Global flag on the field.
When using a variable name in the XML code all the levels of the variable name must be used. For example, if the structure of the XPR file states:
Then the variable call must be Fulfillment.Contact.Firstname. All the levels in the structure must be used.
Web Output Pak is not intended for use with Asian languages.
If you are installing this version of Web Output Pak on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition, you must change a number of
configuration settings in order for the software to run properly.
Enable CGI Scripts
CGI scripts are prohibited by Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) by default. To have the Transaction Processor (jfxp.cgi) function correctly, you must configure IIS to allow CGI scripts by adding jfxp.cgi to the "ISAPI and CGI Restrictions" list at the server level:
1. Go to IIS Manager > Machine > Feature View > Open "ISAPI and CGI Restrictions", Action pane > Add.
2. Specify the jfxp.cgi path here, by default the directory /Inetpub/wwwroot/cgi-bin.
3. Check the "Allow extension path to execute".
4. Click OK.
Handler Mapping for CGI Script
To add handler mapping for jfxp.cgi at site/server level:
1. Go to Site/Server > Feature View > Handler Mappings, Action pane > Add Module Mapping.
2. Request Path: jfxp.cgi
3. Module: CgiModule
4. Name: JF CGI handler
5. Click OK.
Enable Active Server Pages
To ensure that Active Server Pages are enabled:
1. In IIS Manager > Machine > Feature View > Open "ISAPI and CGI Restrictions"
2. Set Active Server Pages to Allow.
Access to Windows Temporary Directory
You must ensure that the Users account has the Full Control permission set on the C:\Windows\Temp directory.
