Send data to Backend, Generate PDF and return it to UI?


Hi guys!

Is this scenario possible? First fill UI5 form, make a call to backend using the data from UI, generate a PDF file and then return it to the UI right away and display it inline?

The examples that I have seen are uploading or saving data to backend first using CREATE/CREATE_STREAM methods and then make another call to read it back again using READ/GET_STREAM methods. Some minimal key is passed along using slug and it's used to read the file from some table or so.

However, I would like to skip the saving part completely if possible. Just pass the data, generate a PDF and return it to UI in one go. Can this be done?
