Creating search rules

You can create pattern matching rules that result in the Output service examining input data and using different form designs based on the data content. For example, if the text mortgage is located within the input data, the Output service can use a form design named Mortgage.xdp. Likewise, if the text automobile is located in the input data, the Output service can use a form design that is saved as AutomobileLoan.xdp. The following illustration shows the Output service generating a PDF file by processing an XML data file and using one of many form designs.

The Output service can generate document packages, where multiple records are provided in the data set and each record is matched to a form design. The Output service generates a single document made up of comprised of multiple form designs.

To define pattern matching rules, define one or more text pattern that the Output services searches for in the input data. For each text pattern that you define, specify a corresponding form design that is used if the text pattern is located within the data. If a text pattern is located, the Output service uses the corresponding form design to generate the output. An example of a text pattern is mortgage.
