Project description

The project supports the online entry, using a form, of data collected during an assessment and the creation of a report in PDF format using Apache FOP.

Steps of the normal flow :

HTML form >> JSON >> XML >> XML-FO >> PDF

• HTML form

Must allow for nested and repeating elements, like [url removed, login to view] using [url removed, login to view] library or equivalent.


An example of the structure is provided : [url removed, login to view]


A sample of the report in pdf format (containing dummy information) is provided : [url removed, login to view]

A document containing the mapping of the keys in the JSON file and the document is provided: [url removed, login to view]

There is an alternative flow, in which the data of an existing JSON are pre-loaded into the HTML form.

Steps of the alternative flow :

JSON >> HTML form >> JSON >> XML >> XML-FO >> PDF

The form, the JSON files (input/output) , and PDF files must be accessible online, via a password protected site. Users must be able to define the names under which JSON and PDF files are saved. We imagine a mini website, based on an open source framweork (Drupal, CodeIgniter or equivalent) , that comes with standard user and file management, in which the form is integrated.
