                              The following script shows how you can call the FOP server from a Ruby program:

                              require 'net/http'

                              # connection data to server
                              http = Net::HTTP.new('localhost', 8087)
                              # URL and XSL-FO file name
                              path = '/J4LFOPServer/servlet?TEMPLATE=departmentEmployees.fo'
                              headers = {'Content-Type' => 'text/xml'}

                              # input xml data
                              xml="<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"iso-8859-1\"?> <departments><department><departmentName>R&amp;D</departmentName> <person> <name>John Schmidt</name> "
                              xml=xml +"<address>Red street 3</address> <status>A</status> </person> <person> <name>Paul Bones</name> <address>White street 5</address> <status>A</status> "
                              xml=xml +"</person> <person> <name>Mark Mayer</name> <address>Blue street 5</address> <status>A</status> </person> <person> <name>Janet Black</name> "
                              xml=xml +"<address>Black street 8</address> <status>I</status> </person></department><department> <departmentName>Sales</departmentName> <person> "
                              xml=xml +"<name>Juan Gomez</name> <address>Green street 3</address> <status>A</status> </person> <person> <name>Juliet Bones</name> <address>White street 5</address> "
                              xml=xml +" <status>A</status> </person></department></departments>"

                              # call xsl-fo server now
                              resp,pdfdata = http.post(path, xml, headers)

                              if (resp.code == '200')
                                  # save pdf data
                                  pdffile = File.new("output.pdf", 'wb')
                                  pdffile.puts pdfdata
