Assembling custom form designs for Output

You can use the Output and Assembler services together to create a highly customized document. The Assembler service assembles an XDP document (a form design) that is made up of multiple XDP forms and inserted fragments located in multiple XDP files. The assembled XDP document is passed to the Output service, which creates a PDF document.

You can specify the containers to be included when a PDF is generated from the XDP documents. In addition, when you use the Assembler service, you can resolve the images referenced in the source XDP documents. You can specify whether to resolve all, none, all relative or all absolute references. By default, none of the references are resolved.

The following illustration shows this workflow.

For information about creating a form design from fragments, see Guidelines for Dynamically Assembling Customized Forms and Documents.
