          1 - Yes, sort of.   The LiveCycle products require the LiveCycle foundation classes to run, but you don't need to install the other modules (Forms, ReaderExtensions, etc).  With Generator you will get some "common" modules, such as Assembler.  To merge two documents in the manner you mentioned, you will use Assembler.


          2 - Yes.  LiveCycle modules run on a J2EE platform and have a full Java API.  The client jar files come with the product.  Java Documentation can be found online at:http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/programLC/javadoc/index.html


          Samples can be found at: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/livecycle/samples.html


          3 - Price and licensing are too broad a topic to discuss in the forums.  It will depend on the request volume (which effects the # CPUs), corporate discounts, existing Adobe products, etc.  Your Adobe Sales Representative is best qualified to give you a quote based on your needs.

              You can download LiveCycle ES2 from trial software on Adobe website and try it out. This includes other modules of LC, but you can choose to install only PDF Generator. You do also need Acrobat Pro Extended, which is also available as a trial.
