    PDFGenerator DSC_CONTEXT

    dylan vr Level 1

      I'm trying to run PDFGenerator on websphere with LiveCycle ES 8.2
      when I try and call the service I get this error
      ALC-PDG-001-000-Conversion failed because of an exception.
      No Credential or Context set
      Caused by: ALC-DSC-213-000: com.adobe.idp.dsc.DSCException: No Credential or Context set

      I have credentials but no context, what value should I put for the DSC_CONTEXT

          Can you provide the details on how you are calling PDFGenerator? When you say "I have credentials but no context...", can you provide the code snippet you are using?

            Hi Kent

            Thanks for the reply. Here is a code snippet of the constructer which has the properties and below is the method call. The last property is DSC_CONTEXT property which is were I could use your help. I'm using the createPDF2() method because the documentaion said that the createPDF() method was depricated. Thanks again.

            public GeneratePDF()
            Properties ConnectionProps = new Properties();

            ConnectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_DEFAULT_EJB_ENDPOINT, "iiop://localhost:2809");

            ConnectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_TRANSPORT_PROTOCOL,Service ClientFactoryProperties.DSC_EJB_PROTOCOL);

            ConnectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_SERVER_TYPE, ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_WEBSPHERE_SERVER_TYPE);

            ConnectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_CREDENTIAL_USERNAME, "administrator");

            ConnectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_CREDENTIAL_PASSWORD, "password");

            ConnectionProps.setProperty(ServiceClientFactoryProperties.DSC_CONTEXT, "");

            * @return Converted PDF

            public byte[] generatePDF(byte[] docIn, String fileName) throws ConversionException, InvalidParameterException, FileFormatNotSupportedException, IOException
            ServiceClientFactory factory = ServiceClientFactory.createInstance(connectionProps);
            Document inDoc = new Document(docIn);
            String adobePDFSettings = "Standard";
            String securitySettings = "No Security";
            String fileTypeSettings = "Standard";

            CreatePDFResult result = null;

            result = new GeneratePdfServiceClient(factory).createPDF2(inDoc,fileName, fileTypeSettings, adobePDFSettings,securitySettings, null, null);

            // Get the newly created document

            Document createdDocument = result.getCreatedDocument();

            InputStream createdDocumentStream = createdDocument.getInputStream();
            byte [] createdDocumentAsBytes = new byte[createdDocumentStream.available()];

            return createdDocumentAsBytes;

              Fixed the problem myself. Here is the code.
              This creates the credentials and places it in the context.

              AuthenticationManagerServiceClient authClient = new AuthenticationManagerServiceClient(factory);

              // Authenticate the user
              String username = "administrator";
              String password = "password";
              AuthResult authResult = authClient.authenticate(username, password.getBytes());

              Context context = new Context();
