We didn’t have the flexibility in the formatting that we required, until we found Docmosis

It allows us to develop and deliver highly-customized reports for our clients in ways that are generally pretty straightforward, flexible and easy to manage.

What is our primary use case?

It allows us to develop and deliver highly-customized reports for our clients in ways that are generally pretty straightforward, flexible and easy to manage.

What other advice do I have?

It allows documents to be designed without needing a developer or a web designer. Anybody who has expertise in Microsoft Word can do this kind of thing, or even the customer themselves could easily format the document to make changes. It's very powerful from that perspective, and I have never seen someone take this approach and do it well until I found Docmosis.

Logic to manipulate and display data is limited, but template creation is akin to UI front-end design

What is our primary use case?

I work for a company that has a web app solution for tracking and managing leases - primarily equipment and hardware leases. Reporting is a major part of the lease tracking and data management offered by our system, and PDF documents that we generate using Docmosis are used on a daily basis by the clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "A new report’s template creation is very often manipulation of a user’s layout of a report. A report can be ready in a day or less, once stored procedures are created as per sections in the report."
  • "Since our initial development, this feature has required very little maintenance. And when changes are requested, it is rather easy to change a Word document template and new staff can be quickly trained to modify a report."
  • "There is flexibility in laying out tables that is akin to UI front-end design."
  • "The challenge in usage when we developed the reports four years ago was the limited logic that can be applied to manipulate and display data. That functionality was largely transferred over to the database layer in creating the data output that was to be displayed."

What other advice do I have?

Development involves creating a template from user document requirements. In fact, the template in most cases can be a clone of the user document, with logic added for recursive or conditional data. We have been using a Word template for this purpose. An XML template sheet maps the database output to the data placeholders in the Word template document. We have been using Oracle PL/SQL queries to retrieve formatted data for various sections of the templates.

The biggest the day-to-day benefits are working through a medium that can be universally used from requirements gathering all the way to a run-time and generating documents.

What other advice do I have?

Docmosis will free up developers, but then the burden falls on someone else, so more attention needs to be spent on Word templates themselves. They need to be as true to the desired form as possible to get a good end result. Someone must take charge of managing and creating Word or OpenOffice templates. Also, there are a few deployment flavors -- cloud, web service for on-premise, and Java libraries. So picking the right mix is key.

We mainly use it for taking Word docs and turning them into PDFs with merged fields.

Go for it. It's been really smooth for us.
