AEM Forms XFA Vs XDP

Avatar

Level 7

Hi,

I have been trying to understand the relation between XFA and XDP.

Using Forms Designer, we could create forms and save as XDP filea.

Could this XDP document be considered as XFA document?

Is it that XFA is a standard or protocol and XDP is an implementation of it?

EchiSign could be used for forms with XFA format only. So, if we use an xdp file, will we be good?

Appreciate your responses.

Thanks,

Rama.

An XDP is a file extension for a file created in AEM / LiveCycle Designer, it's based on an open source specification known as XFA

Echo sign can be used with xfa based forms(xdp)

Or you can create xsd based adaptive forms and associate the form with document of record also known as DOR if you want to use echo sign with xsd based AF
