Using SOAP in Reader

Sep 10, 2010 4:17 AM

Hi all.

 

I've developed a simple application in a PDF using SOAP lo launch a web service.

 

This does not work in reader, unless you have Form Export  Rights open”.

 

To open these rights I've read that I need "Adobe LiveCycle Rights server", wich costs "hundreds to ten of hundreds dollars".

 

Does anyone know an alternative to this?

That is: Any other way to use web services in javascript in reader?

 

Thanks

    None of the Soap object properties are restricted, Only the some of the methods require 'Extended Reader Rights' and there are a couple of the methods that have enhanced security the will require an application level function or a certified PDF to be used. You can apply the Extended Reader Rights with Acrobat Pro 8 or Acrobat 9 Standard or higher. But if you use Acrobat, there is a limit on the number of copies of the PDF that can be distributed.

    Note that the right you need cannot be granted using Acrobat. You do indeed need to use LiveCycle Reader Extensions. But there is at least one third-party service (FormRouter.com) that will, for a fee, enable individual documents.

    I as I indicated earlier, you cannot use Acrobat to grant the right that will allow SOAP to work with Reader. Only LiveCycle Reader Extentions can.
