I'm new to Document Security server, EJBs & also Web Services and I need to apply a policy to a PDF that will be downloaded by a browser.
The web application that is running the site & will handle the request to download the PDF is running under tomcat & on a different server to both Policy Server & Document Security server.
My problem is from what I can tell it's not possible to connect to the Data Manager directly and apply a policy to a PDF before I serve it to the user.
As I'm fairly new to all of this I was wondering what is the quickest way of getting the Data Manager available remotely. I've had a look through the sample code that deploys the data manager via EJB, but I'm also interested in pursuing the web services approach. I'm basically looking for the simplest approach I can take so that I can get something working relatively quickly.
Does anyone have an example of this that I could take a look at, so I can decide which I understand the best?
Any other advice that anyone could offer would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I forgot to mention that I'm running the Adobe LiveCycle stuff under JBoss 3.2.5
