data to XML converter for R/3
(eXtensible Markup Language) is rapidly becoming the new standard for data interchange and
e-commerce. A subset of the long-standing SGML (Standardised General Markup Language), it
is a cousin of the HTML (HyperText Markup Language) used for publishing documents in
browsers and on the world wide web. But while HTML only describes how to display a
document, XML describes the content. The advantage of XML over other data formats is that
it is a text-based markup system that can be read on any platform.
How does it work?
RedTitan RT5000 for R/3 simply takes the raw data interface (RDI) from SAP R/3
applications and converts it to XML. Templates for the static content of documents are
prepared in the Windows PC using RT5000s WYSIWYG Document
The XML variable data output is then formatted and
dynamically merged with the templates by the RT5000 Dynamic
Document Formatter. This creates output in a range of languages that cover all
commonly used printing platforms: Metacode (e.g. Xerox line printers), PostScript (e.g.
Xerox DocuPrint/Tech/Color, IBM, Oce) or PCL (e.g. Hewlett-Packard and compatibles).
Output is sent straight to the printer or RT5000 spooler or directed via the RT5000 TCP/IP
document router, for printing at full production speeds.
