    Error while converting Image -to- PDF and then to PDF/A


      I'm trying to convert a Image format(JPEG,bmp,tiff) to PDF and then to PDF/A. I could able to convert Image to PDF successfully.

      I'm getting the below error while converting the PDF(that was generated) to PDF/A.

      Caused by: com.adobe.livecycle.output.exception.OutputException: Input Document is a already flat PDF Document

          I've just read a footnote in the API documentation which indicates that the transformPDF function cannot be used for this purpose:

          "GS_Enterprise said on Nov 24, 2007 at 12:03 PM :

          Please note that the parameter "inPdfDoc" for transformPDF assumes that the stream content is an XFA-based PDF, and that it's not an XFA-based PDF with a PDF background (also known as "XFA foreground"). In other words, this function does not convert any input PDF to PDF/A, but only those PDFs generated from an XFA template which does not include any static PDF content as a background."
