Tornado Render via Proxy using Java (With XML data)

This example shows how to generate a PDF from a DOC template via a proxy server using Java.  It calls the Docmosis REST API to merge the data with the template and stream the result back.

The sample code includes the instructions to get started. You will need a Free Trial to install and run Tornado.
