The best way is to have schema bound form and use FDM for prefill. However, based on requirement you may choose a different approach.

@Mayank_Gandhi  My form is bound to proper schema and I am saving data xml in Relation database which is storage for draft and submission. Can I use the same data xml as request attribute in page component script in which form is embedded ? Also confirm if I need to pull additional metadata to pre populate adaptive form in page ?

 

Actual requirement is to enable user to open drafted application and continue from there.We have our custom user dashboard where drafted form(s) will be displayed and upon clicking continue user should be able to see form populated with previously saved data. We are not using out of box drafts and submission component but using service implementation provided by Adobe to customize the data storage.

yes, you should be able to prefill the form with dataXML extracted from the form.
