XML to PDF Filter

This is the first filter we are going to get everyone certified on. We currently use to convert the text content in OBX segments to a PDF document. These are rather simplistic PDF but we have a need to take CDA documents and convert them to PDF in the engine. Stay tuned as we go down this path of certification.

Documentation is scarce on this filter and can be a bit misleading. There is a property called Input EDI Definition where a S3D file can be selected as the input to the filter. The documentation states “The EDI message definition of the input file. If this is specified, the filter converts the incoming file to XML format then to PDF format without requiring further user action.” Which is misleading because it leads you to think that magically the incoming messages matching the EDI specification selected will somehow be converted to a PDF format. What this really means is that the XSL-FO can use the Xpath expressions for the EDI file’s XML representation just as you can in a Java Script filter.
