    Workbench Web Service call to CreatePDF issue

    Super_Hans

      Hi all,

       

      I am having some trouble making a web service call from a workbench process to CreatePDF running on a LiveCycle 8.2 Windows machine. I have successfully called the service in Java using the GeneratePdfServiceClient.createPDF2() method, so I think I have ruled out a config issue on the server. I would like to pass in a base64 word/powerpoint document and receive a base64 pdf in the response. Below is the request I am using currently:

       

      <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:ser="http://adobe.com/idp/services">
         <soapenv:Header/>
         <soapenv:Body>
            <ser:CreatePDF>
               <ser:inputDocument>
                  <ser:contentType>application/msword</ser:contentType>
                         <ser:binaryData>**Binary data omitted****

                          </ser:binaryData>
                   </ser:inputDocument>

               <ser:fileName>test.doc</ser:fileName>
            </ser:CreatePDF>
         </soapenv:Body>
      </soapenv:Envelope>

       

       

      This request returns the following error from the test harness in workbench:

      Ive checked the ***path to*** \native-in.doc and the file does exist there.

       

      Does anyone have a sample request which has worked previously? I have tried including more elements in the request but none have been successful.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

          Are you setting the blob=base64 switch in the service URL?

            Hi Hodmi,

             

            yes I'm using 'GeneratePDFService?blob=base64' in the service url

              Strange.  The document is getting to the server (usually the 'hard' part), but for some reason the service can't locate it. It doesn't look like a permissions issue, but something seems to be keeping the service from finding the file.

               

              Just for kicks, can you use the Admin tool service (Home > Services >LiveCycle PDF Generator ES2 > Create PDF) to try to convert the file saved in the temporary location?

                I tried converting the file using the admin ui but it failed with a similar error trace (pasted below). Is the problem with the file format? Base64 encoding? As I cannot open the temporary file correctly in MS word either, it prompts for the user to select the correct encoding.

                 

                The admin ui converted a word file I created locally with the same contents (unencoded) without isssues.

                 

                Log for conversion attempt of temporary file through the admin ui:

                  Okay, that does tell us something.  If you can't open the document on the LiveCycle side in Word, then something happened to the file.  Its either corrupt, or some sort of encoding happened.  Assuming that you can open the source document (on the client side), then my guess would be something happened during when preparing the request, or during transmission.

                   

                  I re-read your original post and I noticed something interesting.  Are you base64 encoding the document yourself before you add it to the BLOB?  If so, then that may be the probem.  When you use the BLOB's setBinaryData method it will perform the base64 encoding for you.  If its already base64 encoded then you are double encoding it.

                   

                  Since you have access to the SOAP message (from your other post), can you decode the document in the <ser:binaryData> tag?  That will tell us if the document is being transmitted correctly.
