The XML Generator creates XML from a given format file. It prompts for format(s), number of labels to print, which printer to use and variable data used to populate the fields on the format. A manager can use the new XML file as a template for an XML-enabled application. The XML Generator requires the .Net framework and Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Tharo Systems Inc. says the XML Monitor on its EasyLabel 5 Platinum printer will “watch” a file directory or TCP/IP port and automatically print RFID or barcode labels when a compatible XML file is received. This feature directly connects to applications capable of generating properly formatted XML files, which include most supply chain and manufacturing software.
