New to AEM - xfa forms into AEM

patpai 27-12-2017

Good day,

Im new to AEM, we just purchased a copy about a month ago, version AEM 6.3.

I have about 400 xfa PDF files that i maintain and i would like to know how i get them into AEM?

Do i need to convert them or can i just start using them without any other steps?

If i do need to do something, could i get an idea of what the steps might be

Thank you very much,

Once you have deployed the AEM Forms addon into AEM using package manager you can go to http://localhost:4502/aem/forms.html/content/dam/formsanddocuments this will allow you to import your XFA forms one at a time or if it's easier for you zip up the XFA forms and upload the zip.  You can use the forms to render as PDF or HTML or use them as a Form Model to create an adaptive form which is more suitable for mobile devices.  If your xfa forms are based on a schema you can also use the XSD as form model and this is recommended if the XFA forms are large.
