RPE Document Generation Service on Bluemix


Since RPE 2.0 we have an experimental Bluemix service for document generation. The service is free and exposes a simple REST API that allows you to create reports and produce documents. You can access it in the labs section of the Bluemix Labs Catalog.

To help you understand how to use the service we have an example running at http://dgaasx_ddc.mybluemix.net/ This example enables you to create PDF snapshots from RSS feeds such as the BBC or NPR ones.

The example’s source code is available on GitHub and on IBM DevOps for Bluemix: https://hub.jazz.net/project/dragos.cojocari/dgaas_example/overview On the project’s page you will find detailed instructions on how to fork the project so that you can experiment with DGaaS yourself.
