embedding xpf jobticket into pdf

Hi all,

 

Embedding the xpf xml jobticket in a pdf file, constantly results in making the pdf unreadable by Acrobat (reader & pro).

When submitting this file, FF interpreats the printsettings correctly. Other 3th party pdf readers read it fine too.

Is it possible to generate a pdf which can be read by acrobat?

We are developping a web application which has to read (and visualise) the print parameters and generate a preview of the pdf.

Re: embedding xpf jobticket into pdf

PDFs with embedded XPIF tickets are only created by print submission tools. These PDFs are meant for submission to FreeFlow Print Server.

If you want to process the PDFs using a preview tool and Acrobat you will need to strip off the embedded ticket before sending the file to Acrobat.

Can someone supply me a sample of a file with the XPIF embedded into the PDF file?

Re: embedding xpf jobticket into pdf

Unfortunately, I am not even sure how to extract the submitted files from FreeFlow Print Server / DocuSP.

I can answer any question on FreeFlow Core but Print Server / DocuSP are a little out of my area of expertise.

 

I do beklieve, however, that the information you are looking for (and more) is available as part of the SDK. You can sing up here: https://www.xerox-solutions.net/developers

Re: embedding xpf jobticket into pdf

If you managed to export the .XPF file, just run following command in CMD:

copy /b <ticket file.xpf> + <PDF file.pdf> <print file.pdf>

It should generate a new pdf file which becomes unreadable by Adobe Acrobat, but it can still be correctly interpreted by FF Printserver.

For our web to print application, we even created a executable which handles the merge of the pdf file and the print parameters (based on the mentioned CMD command). The generated file is then copied to the hotfolder of FFPS.

In FFC v3 SP1, the external node will have use of a new variable $FFxpf$ that points to the internal XPIF ticket. The software is done but it is making it's way to xerox.com (expected availability date is Feb 10th).
