Having been wrestling with generating PDF documents via FPDF for some time now, I am really impressed by this - thanks for letting us know about it. It is going to make a major difference!

Great stuff!

Wonderful. Was in the process of writing a library that did exactly this. But since I just started I can drop that and focus on the rest of my project :D

Hello Daniel and Bill

FPDF is an outstanding library, if you want to generate PDF files programmatically.

However, there are many developers, who find this approach very time consuming.

Hence, we set about creating a new approach, in which you create a template in a word processing application and then simply populate that template in PHP.

This approach is considerably less time consuming and really easy to implement.

The result is the Zend_Service_LiveDocx_* family of components.

If you need any help, simply contact me at:

I am only too happy to assist :-)
