Big Faceless Report Generator v1.2.5

Create PDF reports from XML using Java.
November 24, 2021 - 11:49
New Version

Big Faceless Report Generator allows you to convert source documents written in XML to PDF. Create PDF reports directly from your database. Built on top of BFO's popular PDF and Graph libraries, the Report Generator combines the features of the two and wraps an XML parser around them. Using JSP, ASP or similar technology, you can now create dynamic PDF reports as quickly and easily as HTML.

  • Create dynamic reports using JSP’s, ASP’s, XSLT - whatever you would normally use to create dynamic HTML pages.
  • Simple HTML-style XML syntax makes migration for HTML reports (and HTML programmers) relatively painless.
  • Use Cascading Style Sheets (level 2) to control the document look-and-feel.
  • Build Reports on top of existing PDF documents (Extended Edition only).
  • Full support for autosized, nested tables, lists, hyperlinks, images and other familiar HTML features.
  • Inline generation of graphs and charts, in full shaded 3D.
  • Embed XML metadata directly in the PDF, following Adobe's XMPTM specification.
  • Native Unicode support. No worrying about codepages, encodings and so on, it just works.
  • Embed and subset OpenType and Type 1 fonts, or use one of the 14 latin or 8 east-asian built in fonts.
  • 40 and 128-bit PDF Encryption, for eyes only documents. Digital signatures too.
  • Auto-pagination of content with headers, footers and watermarks.
  • Use ICC color profiles, spot color and patterns for sophisticated color control.
  • Draw barcodes and simple vector graphics directly into the document using XML elements.

Updates in v1.2.5

  • Tested and verified with Java 17 and dropped support for Java 5.
  • Built with BFO PDF Library v2.26.2, BFO Graph Library v1.1.6.
