I am new to AEM Forms 6.3, but I have used LiveCycle ES4. Under LiveCycle ES4 to create a connection, I added the SQL connection string to the adobe-ds.xml file under the deploy directory. After restarting JBoss, I could use to connection to create a WSDL. On AEM Forms 6.3 to add a SQL connection, do I have to use configMgr? If I have to use it, how do I install it? Thank you.
6.3 onwards, in case you want to configure your Adaptive forms to connect to Database or any other Datasource you can use Form Data Model.
Form Data Model(FDM): AEM Forms data integration module allows you to create a form data model from disparate backend data sources such as AEM user profile, RESTful web services, SOAP-based web services, OData services, and relational databases. You can configure data model objects and services in a form data model and associate it with an adaptive form. Adaptive form fields are bound to data model object properties. The services enable you to prefill the adaptive form and write submitted form data back to the data model object.
