    doc.setTest(true);                                                   // test documents are free but watermarked
    doc.setDocumentContent("<html><body>Hello World</body></html>");     // supply content directly
    // doc.setDocumentUrl("http://docraptor.com/examples/invoice.html"); // or use a url
    doc.setDocumentType(Doc.DocumentTypeEnum.PDF);                       // PDF or XLS or XLSX
    doc.setName("docraptor-java.pdf");                                   // help you find a document later
    doc.setJavascript(true);                                             // enable JavaScript processing
    // prince_options = new PrinceOptions();
    // doc.setPrinceOptions(prince_options);
    // prince_options.setMedia("screen");                                // use screen styles instead of print styles
    // prince_options.setBaseurl("http://hello.com")                     // pretend URL when using document_content
    docraptor.createDoc(doc);
  }
