Re: [xsl] Converting XML into ODT document to print as paper

2020-09-28 15:53:25
 My Wordinator project (http://wordinator.org/) provides a general XML to DOCX 
framework that uses the Apache POI library to generate full-featured Word docs 
from a simple XML format that you can generate from whatever. I provide a basic 
HTML transform as a starting point.

Dear all, 

I would need to convert XML to something that has a fixed page layout ready 
to print, like ODT/OOXML or PDF. 

I know OOXML is complex, but since the final document needs to be printed and 
keep the same layout, probably HTML output is not good for this (I guess!).

What I need at the moment is just a quick and dirty proof of concept to show 
that this conversion is feasible and not too difficult, to show it to 
decision makers (I'm not a XSLT developer myself).

This is my input (sample): 

And this would be my output:

My first thought was to unzip the ODT model I have, look at the content.xml 
inside and then try to transform my XML into that same structure (as 
suggested here: 

However, probably that's the hard way... 

I'm doing some research, any tips or pointers or advice or recommendation or 
examples here would be highly appreciated. Is there any best practice to do 
this? or a ready-made solution?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Manuel
