Hello community please I need your help

I've been looking for a solution to a deficiency I have with alfresco for about 02 months. I made a simple form (html) of civil status and I want to share the file between the parties involved for a final validation. for this it is necessary that after filling out the form the execution of the save button creates a pdf file and saves it automatically in the repository, I really do not know how to do it please I attach my html code and what I have already done:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Save form Data in a Text File using JavaScript</title>
    <style>
        body {
            background-position:center;
            background-position:relative;
            }
      div {
            border: 0px solid black;
            margin-top: 5px;
            margin-bottom: 5px;
            margin-right: 350px;
            margin-left: 350px;
            background-color: hsl(50, 33%, 25%);
            
        }
        label { 
            float: left;
            text-align: right;
            width: 35%;
            margin: 0px;
            padding: 0px;
            display: block; }
      
        input[type=button]{ 
            font: 17px Calibri;
            width: auto;
            float: center;
            cursor: pointer;
            padding: 7px;
        }
    </style>

Re: Hello community please I need your help

@gaga I assume this HTML file is standalone and on form submit it would either:

- Create PDF and upload to Alfresco repository.

- Send the content of the html form (as xml, or json or request params depending on your choice. json is preffered) to an endpoint/webscript and write custom login within webscript to read the input, generate a pdf file and write it in a dedicated folder.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For first approach:

You can create the pdf before hand using the form input and use alfresco's OOTB upload api to upload the pdf file. You can use either of following apis to upload 

1- Using File upload API :

2- https://docs.alfresco.com/6.0/concepts/dev-api-by-language-alf-rest-upload-file.html

 

For second approach:

1- Create a webscript/rest api. Refer below tutorial/docs on how to implement a webscript.

http://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series-tutorials/webscripts/tutorial/tutorial.html

https://docs.alfresco.com/6.0/concepts/ws-java-backed-webscripts.html

2- Within the webscript, you can use any open source/proprietary pdf generation libraries based on your choice and create the pdf based on the input (xml/json etc.). iText library is one of the open source libraries. You can check this tutorial here: 

https://howtodoinjava.com/library/read-generate-pdf-java-itext/

3- Within the webscript, you can write logic to wirte the generated pdf into repository. 

You can use following services to create file/folder:

-----------------------------------

Note: You need to authenticate with alfresco and get the ticket for using the APIs or you can use basic authentication as well. Both are supported. You can either of the below given apis to get the ticket.

https://docs.alfresco.com/5.0/references/RESTful-RepositoryLoginPost.html

or

https://docs.alfresco.com/6.0/concepts/dev-api-by-language-alf-rest-auth-with-repo.html
