I diggs opportunity to integrate PPSuite in a JDF (Job Definition Format) workflow, allowing simplified communication with controller JDF (HTTP protocol, method POST) and converting Custom Job Ticket Printing parameters to JDF Job Ticket (XML extended file) and mutually translate JDF print settings into PostScript.

Has somebody ever worked around JDF structure with PlanetPress ?

Trying to implement JDF support is a huge undertaking. The spec alone is several hundreds of pages long and requires excellent knowledge of XML and XPath.

One of the reasons PlanetPress does not yet support JDF out of the box is because of the amount of R&D involved in simply trying to figure out which parts of the JDF specs can be left out and which ones must be implemented.

JDF is still in our long term plans, however. But in the meantime, I'd be curious to see if any member of our community has ever attempted even a partial implementation.
