Subject Re: converted PDF
Date Wed, 07 Jun 2000 14:51:53 GMT is the deal...
I have an xml file(attached with this email) to which I am applying sql processor.
Then I also apply style sheet to it as you can see in attached file.
Then I apply FOP to convert that file into PDF file.

Now the whole functionality is in one taglib. e.g.
<email:mail to = "" from = "" file = "msds_for_cocoonuser.xml?msds=1"/>

When I do this, it should grab msds_for_cocoonuser.xml, apply sql processor to it, apply style
sheet to it, apply FOP to it, store the PDF as stream of bytes (not as a file in a file system)
and  THEN send the PDF file as an email attachment to user. This all should happen dynamically.

I tried my best to explain the situation...any help will be appreciated...

  The problem here is you have a converted/renderized FOP version of your XML contents "on
the fly" (it doesn't really exists as a filesystem file). So, I think (I hope I'm noty wrong)
you need to generate your FOP content as a real PDF file in your file system. Then, you can
send this generated file as an email attachment, a link to it, etc.
