    Can't generate PDF from xdp and XML

    jgrm2811 Level 1



      I'm new to livecycle and flashbuilder.


      I assigned as a task to send to a  livecycle server a xdp template and a XML file with the data in order to create the pdf.

      So far, I created a class with two methods that returns as a BLOB the strings of a xdp template and the XML data to populate the template.


      On the main application I'm calling the generatePDFOutput method from the OutputService and as far as I know I'm supposed to get a Blob which I can manipulate to save it as a PDF.


      What could be my error? or how should I approach this problem? I came here since I can't find some document that shows how to create pdf from a flex app using livecycle...


      I appreaciate your help.


      I attach below the code of the main class




      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      <s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"

                  wsCall.token=pdf.generatePDFOutput("PDF","Form.xdp","D:\\PDF_Output",out,render,TestPDF.D ata());


                  var res:BLOB= wsCall.lastResult as BLOB;


                  var result:ByteArray= new ByteArray();

                      result=res as ByteArray;


                  var a:Number=2;
