http://ofbiz.markmail.org/message/rtrxzvlozlnribye?q=multiple+invoice+template to keep in mind and/or if some people is interested to contribute
I am looking for a way to add additional invoice templates without changing to much of the original ofbiz code if possible.
The case: - multiple unrelated companies - multi tenant environment - multiple invoice layouts
When I have this case on a projet, I use the content system to load the template.
Example : Store a default template for each organization or a template specific by some customer.
- Create PartyContentType : INVOICE_TEMPLATE
- Load your templates en Content
- Associate your content to each organization in ofbiz
- if a customer have a specific template associate it
On your InvoicePDF screen resolve the template by a groovy script :
Warn, I wrote the code on the fly, maybe it doesn't contains the absolute true
Now you have a content, you can resolve your flow has you want (ftl injection, content service to renderer string), etc ....
