Introduction to XML Printing
Information in XML format provides greater flexibility as it can directly integrate with various systems. XML format offers flexibility as it is not confined to limited preset tags, which is contrasting to other markup languages with preset tags such as HTML.
In other words, XML allows each vendor in a specified industry to create its own set of tags to cater to that industry without much sacrifice of compatibility issues.
Comparing stored information is the traditional approach, where for example, a third-party software, typically the middleware, is required to store the data in an acceptable format into the database. Now, large scale database systems, such as Oracle Warehouse Management System (WMS), SAP and other custom applications can store information in XML format.
Advantages of XML Printing using SATO Printers
- Provide direct printing solutions with any database system without the need for any additional print server hardware and middleware application
- Achieve an overall printing system infrastructure that saves time, improve efficiency and reduces unnecessary costs that would have otherwise been used to develop the middleware application
- Print labels from ERP systems such as Oracle Warehouse Management System (WMS), SAP or any other custom application which can generate label information in XML format
Integration with Oracle WMS - How it works
SATO XML-enabled NX-Series printers can parse XML output into barcode output format and print directly print from ORACLE’s WMS and MSCA.
