Symptoms

New functionality has been released to allow users to generate reports that are part of their shipping documents sets in XML output format. Prior to this patch, Shipping reports that had a XML output format, could only be executed individually, not as part of a document set. With the introduction of patch 5688014, if a Shipping Report (Custom Concurrent Program) is defined with the Output Format as 'XML' and has a Template attached to it, then Shipping will generate the Report in PDF format.

The output post processor will take an XML output request and default a template and call XML publisher to generate your final output. It eliminates the need to submit two concurrent requests, one to generate your XML (Reports6i), the other to transform your document (XML publisher). It glues the pieces together.
