Xerox DJDE to Normalized Metacode API


Our 32-bit DJDE to normalized Metacode conversion API converts line data conditioned by Dynamic Job Descriptor Entries (DJDEs) into normalized Metacode. This allows you to print individual pages on a Xerox laser printer without recycling the print data set.


The DJDE API consists of three major sub-components:

  • A font and logo facility that extracts character information to position text data on a page
  • A component that tokenizes Xerox Job Source Language
  • A component that uses the JSL tokens to transform line data into Xerox Metacode
