    Error Invoking adobe livecycle process from Documentum Workflow method

    Mrsunilg Community Member



      I have written a documentum workflow method which generates xml files dynamically and send it to the adobe server to convert the xml file to pdf and return the pdf document.When I ran the code from my local machine it is working fine,but when I deployed the code in the Documentum Server where JBoss is the application server,the code is throwing null in getting a InvocationResponse object,


      Below the code I have written


      public class PDFTemplateWorkflow extends WorkflowMethod {

      private static final String REQUEST_PACKAGE = "Package0";
      private static final String FEE_PACKAGE = "Package1";

      public int doTask(IDfWorkitem workitem, IDfProperties activityParameters,
         PrintWriter printWriter) throws Exception
         /*Read the activity parameters */
         System.out.println("Entering into doTask Method");
         String requestPackage =activityParameters.getString(REQUEST_PACKAGE);
         System.out.println("First Package is "+requestPackage);
         String feePackage =activityParameters.getString(FEE_PACKAGE);
         System.out.println("Second Package is"+feePackage);
