I have a livecycle service running, converting msword files to pdf.
I am in the process of configuring a more complex process that will (optionally) assemble other pages onto the pdf, generates a jpg thumbnail and then (finally) assigned reader-extensions rights to the doc.
convertFromWord -> thumbnail gen -> reader-rights
I have some application code (acrobat plugin api / PDF library) which modifies pdf documents, adding watermarks. I would lke to execute this step in between thumbnail generation and the reader-extensions rights are assigned. e.g.
convertFromWord -> thumbnail gen -> watermark -> reader-rights
How might I go about incorporating this into liveCycle?
Is this a custom document component I can write? Is there an existing service I can adapt?
Do i need to write this in Java, or can i use my c++ implementation?
I can't find any reference to any way of being able to modify a pdf within liveCycle using via the official PDF APIs, hence I am hoping someone on this forum can point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance
Why don't you just use the Assembler service to add the watermark.
That way you can build a LiveCycle orchestration that does all you need without the need for any custom code.
I hadn’t got as far as reading ALL the service documents, so didn’t realise Assembler did that.
Thanks for the pointer. I'll go read up about DDX scripts...
