xml to pdf using c# asp.net

Hi,

At the moment I am working on an documentation tool where customers can
build their own documentation by selection chapters of standard docs and
building their own 'tree' of documentation. This is all done in xml, and now
I want to transform this xml document to a pdf.

Does somebody have experience with this?

Tnx in advance!

There are a host of pdf generators that use XML as a source. Many (all that
I know of) are commercial endeavours though.

Here are a few I have looked at previously in my research:
Active PDF:
http://www.activepdf.com/products/se...t/overview.cfm
Aspose.Pdf:: http://www.aspose.com/
CambridgeDocs PDF XML Publishing Server:
http://www.cambridgedocs.com/product...hingserver.htm
PDF995: http://site4.pdf995.com/download.html
RenderX XEP: http://shop.xattic.com/~renderx/shop/shop.cgi
Visual programming XMLPDF: http://www.xmlpdf.com/index.html

HTH,
JH

JH has a good list. You can also search SourceForge.net for open source.
NOTE, however, that you may still have licensing issues with Source Forge,
if you wish to commercially deploy.
