LiveCycle ES Output can certainly do the job. You can use a watched folder technique or call it via api's.
You can get downloads etc. through our developer centre...
Regarding: "I want to download the LiveCycle ES and run it in my XP desktop for trial study, not in an application server, is that workable?"
Yes, start with the JBoss Turnkey installer. It comes bundled with JBoss and MySQL. However, I would recommend running the LiveCycle server on a machine with at least 3-4gb of RAM if this is also going to be your dev environment.
There a a development environment that you install and point at the server called Workbench.
Here is an alternative to your original approach. You can define the template in Designer and associate it with schema (this will allow you to bind the fields easily). Then when you are ready to create a printable representation, you can perform a merge of the XFA template and data to create the PDF. If your data already adheres to a particular format, you may be able to define a schema for it and skip the XSLT transform. all together.
Thanks your help!
The only I have now are XML files with different formats(different node hierarchie and different element names). Does generate-PDF-service can convert adobe XML form(XFA-based PFD form) to PDF?
If yes, how to generate adobe XML form? Any tempalte designed in LiveCycle Designer can generate adobe XML form?
The forms can be built to generate different XML hierarchies (one per form). Generate PDF service will convert formats like office docs, open office, documents with structure to PDF. If you want to XFA based forms and merge it structured XML data then LiveCycle Forms will do that. XFA forms are generated using Forms Designer (a windows based application that allows you to design forms in a WYSIWYG environment). Merging the template and structured data together using Forms is what will give you the PDF you seek.
I have to fill the bookmarks of a pdf with rtf or pdf file content.
I have adobe live cycle.
Can you please suggest me how can we do it?
Is this a case of combining a number of separate documents into a single doc (hence the bookmarks to get to the desired doc) or is it a single doc that needs bookmarks to desired topics/areas within the doc?
Note that bookmarks will not work on a interactive form (a form the user can still interact with). You can flatten the form (take the form interactivity out of it) and then add bookmarks to it.
I am wanting to download a trial version onto my Windows XP machine. We will eventually use the JBoss/Unix version, but for the trial I am using my XP machine. So, do I download the JBoss/Unix version, or do I need to download the Jboss/Windows version for the trial?
Jboss/Windows if you are loading it on your XP.
