Document generator

Document generator module creates and handes documents.

Before using the module, check if it is installed and connect it via the following structure:


Class Description
Main classes
Body Parser class. Needed to access template content. Allows replacing placeholders with actual values.
Docx Descendant of class Body.
Docxxml Descendant of class Body.
DataProvider Abstract class for data provider. Classes that realises it, passes fields and values. The module has several base descendants of this class. Any DataProvider in one of its fields can return another DataProvider with nesting level unlimited.
EntityDataProvider Descendant of class DataProvider for handling ORM DAOs (data access objects) .
HashDataProvider Descendant of class DataProvider for handling simple providers on hash side.
ArrayDataProvider Descendant of class DataProvider. Provides access to array of values for single field.
DataProviderManager Singleton that stores provider hash. Collects methods for manipulating provider data - their initialization, data retrievals and etc.
Template Compares placeholders from file (Body) and how these placeholder's data can be retrieved. Rules for getting the data consist of (with increasing priority) field settings by default, placeholder settings by default (not used), placeholder settings for current template (not used).
Document Generates document instance or handles already existing document. Document is created based on template containing a file + field settings + main provider type. After that, field/placeholder values must be passed to the document. Now, document must be generated. It will be automatically saved in the document table after generation.
