IBM eServer iSeries Printing VII: Infoprint Server Implementation
This IBM Redpaper builds on the extensive coverage of IBM Redbook "IBM eServer iSeries Printing VI: Delivering the Output of e-business," SG24-6250. It expands the implementation guidance for output delivery applications and includes new support available in V5R3. The target audience of this paper is iSeries clients, IBM Business Partners, and IBM IT specialists who need to implement e-business communications solutions with Infoprint Server.

The principal focus of the paper is intelligent routing. Intelligent routing is a set of capabilities that enable the profiled delivery of business documents and reports to customers and users in the most productive format (print, Web, e-mail, fax). The intelligent routing functions are delivered with two different enabling interfaces. You'll find step-by-step coverage of both interfaces as well as sample programming to get you up and running quickly.

In addition, you'll find related tips and application techniques. These include use of color in iSeries documents, interfacing intelligent routing with fax functions, PDF encryption, and performance considerations.
