Joining Multiple Documents into a Single Document
The SpringCM API exposes methods that will let you combine up to 200 documents into a single PDF document. The source documents do not have to be PDF's, but they must be of a document type that SpringCM creates a PDF rendition for. The call to combine documents is an asynchronous operation that is initiated by the DocumentMerge method. Its progress is tracked with the DocumentMergeCheck method. When the merge completes successfully, the new document can be downloaded with the DocumentMergeDownload method. The final document cannot be directly stored in SpringCM, it must be downloaded.
Do not confuse the DocumentMerge method, which combines documents together, with the DocumentXMLMerge method, which creates a new document based on an XML datasource and merge template.
