      Description

      In XJDF-332 we defined the VariableIntent.
      What we missed was to define how the customer defines the corresponding data.

      Example:

      • How do I define the serial number (incremented or pre-calculated with checksum) of tickets
      • How do I define the addresses a mailing should be send to (with/without layout)

        Draft

        Example X.X.X: Defining variable data

        The following example illustrates a product ordered in a web to print scenario. It requests a two sided product that has a unique card number on the front of every product. The numbers are provided in the referenced CSV-file. This sample does not define the representation of the variable text, as this is typically defined in the PDL that defines the static content.

        Table 6.114: LayoutElementProductionParams Resource

        FileSpec (DataList) ? ... References a data list containing record information for variable data production. If specified, the input RunList of the LayoutElementProduction process SHOULD reference a PDL that enables formatting of variable content. Example include ##ref ISO 16613-1 PDF/VCR.
        Note: The format of the referenced data is implementation specific.

        ======= draft 2 =======
        The following example illustrates a product ordered in a web to print scenario. It requests a two sided product that has a unique card number on the front of every product. The template file is defined in 4 page pdf file. The numbers are provided in the referenced CSV-file. This sample does not define the representation of the variable text, as this is typically defined in the PDL that defines the static content.
