// It talks about Adaptive form.
The adaptive forms feature of Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) forms allows you to create engaging, responsive, and adaptive forms that automatically render as PDF or HTML5 based on device and browser settings. Adaptive forms dynamically adapt to user responses by adding or removing fields or sections based on user response.
With adaptive forms, you can break down a form into logical sections, which enables end users to focus on filling out one section at a time. In addition, you can leverage the default form templates supplied with AEM forms, use existing Adobe XML or XFA templates, or create your own templates from scratch.
Added Later: - "Forms" component existed before adaptive forms were introduced. Adaptive forms is a lot more capable
Thanks for the Reply.
it does help in clarifying the Adaptive Forms.
But the other "Form" component group which is also available.
Is it something which existed before Adaptive Form was introduced and does not have all the benefits of the Adaptive Form?
Yes, the other "Forms" component existed before adaptive forms were introduced. Adaptive forms is a lot more capable.
There is one more clarification i need help with.
I now understand the difference between "Adaptive Form" and "Form" components.
Now have a question on AEM Forms.
If my understanding in correct "AEM forms" (previously life cycle) is a separate product all together and needs a separate licence.
If i have an existing AEM licence i can use either "Adaptive Form" or "Form" components without an extra licence based on my needs.
You are correct - with standard AEM lic - you can use AEM form components or make your own.
Thanks everyone for the reply.
