    Custom Component with xfaForm input

    Level 1
      Hi. I'm trying to create a custom component that takes as one of its inputs either an xfaForm, a Document containing XML, or an xml variable. So my service method has a variable called data which is just an Object. When I pass in the xfaForm I get a class cast exception when casting the object to the XFARepositoryFormInstance class. I even print out the object and it shows me that its an XFARepositoryFormInstance. Do I have to do something special to work with an xfaForm inside the component? It seems like some sort of class loading issue or something.

      I'm stuck. Anybody have thoughts?

      Thanks,
      Bryan

          I'm unstuck :)  The key to getting this to work is to import the packages you are going to use in your component.xml.

          So, for me..I had to add the following:

               
                  com.adobe.idp.workflow.dsc.type
                  com.adobe.idp.taskmanager.form
                  com.adobe.idp.taskmanager.form.impl
                  com.adobe.idp.taskmanager.form.impl.xfa
