CICS2PDF is native CICS software to create and deliver real-time PDF output from any CICS application. Content can be entered online, retrieved from a database, or created within the business logic of the application.
In this demonstration of CICS2PDF, you are viewing an HTML front-ended CICS screen where data is entered in select fields below, passed to CICS2PDF with instructions for applying a form overlay (invoice) and specific invoiced items, and CICS2PDF creates and returns a PDF invoice to the application (don't worry - it's not a real invoice) - which is returned to the web browser using CICS Web Support and also (optionally) attached and sent via email. While this sample uses a web interface, CICS2PDF can be invoked from a traditional 'green screen' application.
Some features to note:
IF you enter a VALID POSTAL ADDRESS below - it creates a shipping address link to a MapQuest map. Just click the PDF's 'Shipping Address' box.
IF you enter a VALID EMAIL ADDRESS (optional) - receive a copy of the PDF via email!
CLICK ON the PDF paper clip icon inside the PDF - shows the parameters used to create the PDF.
NEW! IF you enter a fax number (optional-US and Canada only) - receive a copy of the invoice via eFax.com!
