Populating a PDF template using an XML file

Oct 19, 2010 2:17 AM

I created a PDF template file in LiveCycle Designer that holds labels that are replaced with data held in an XML file that I import using the Acrobat. I would like to know if there is a way to populate the PDF template programmatically (Webservice or JAVA).

 

Thanks

 

Eli

    If you want to do it server side then you would use either LiveCycle Forms or LiveCycle Output (depending if you want the form interactive or not).

     

    If you want to do it client side then you would make a web service connection in the form itself.  Your form would need to be Reader Extended so that users with the free Reader could make the web service call.

    Since you don't need your form to be interactive once the data is merged, then you should look at Output

    Re run the LiveCycle Configuration manager on your server (back up the server  and database first).
