Yes, you can use FDF/XFDF to send data to the server and report information back to the document. Take a look at Doc.submitForm() method using the FDF/XFDF parameter: Acrobat DC SDK Documentation - Doc.submitForm() You will need form fields to send/receive data, but these can be hidden.
Thanks for your replay.
I tried with your above solution but i got some error.
I want to send a value to the server (i am able to send the value to server) and i want to get the response from the server. (but how to recive response from server to form field is it is possible)
i have tried with the below code in adobe reader 11:
and i have received the error as: an error occured during submit process. cannot process content type text/xml; charset=utf-8.
Your web script needs to return a suitable format for filling form fields: XFDF or FDF. Though XFDF is XML, it must have a suitable content-type. So, yes, there is an alternative to SOAP. But if your question is really "can I connect to existing unmodified services that return general XML data" the answer is certainly "no".
