I am working on a project where AEM Server (6.5) is used to render XFA forms as HTML. There is a list of form links on the website. The user clicks the XFA form link, the form is rendered as HTML, and then the user then has an option to click a button which will generate a flattened PDF including their typed in data. The intent is for large scale use of this.
We need to make a decision on how much forms scripting to use in the XFA forms. The forms scripting will be Client scripts. Even though these are Client scripts, there is a concern that the forms scripting will slow AEM server performance - this could be from the server processing that occurs when the link is clicked and/or the server processing from clicking the button to generate a flattened PDF.
Is this a valid concern - that scripting in the forms will affect Server performance - given there will be a lot of users? I did not develop the web application - I am focusing on the forms - and need help understanding this. Thank you.
