Help required in accessing a file on shared path

Mar 1, 2012 5:18 PM



I am trying to access a file present in a shared location using a custom component. When i run my Java code the file is accessible. But when i deploy the same code on livecycle as a custom component, the code is not able to access the file.


The location of the file is as follows: \\Shiva\Test\tempExcel.xlsx

The path string i use in Java code is: ////Shiva//Test//tempExcel.xlsx


Can someone help me with this issue. Do i have to change the pattern of the file path when i am trying to access the file from adobe livecycle custom component?


In case i need to provide permissions to livecycle for accessing the Excel sheet please suggest on how i should implement the same.

    readResource content operation will fetch documents from Adobe Repository. Unless you checkin the required file into repository, the above error will remain.


    From a shared folder, you should able to read the files using readDocument (using FileUtils) without any issues. Perhaps, the access rights prevent the execution.


    If you are running JBoss as a windows service (turnkey will create a windows service for the JBoss instance), try the following:


    Run -> services.msc -> Right click on JBoss service for Adobe LiveCycle -> Properties


    Check the value given under logon tab. The User Account mentioned there should have appropriate access to the shared folder you are attempting read.

    The path just looks fine. Contact your administrator to make sure that the path is accessible from the server.
