Can Adobe Experience Manager help me with this?.

Hi, I got a pdf file that has inside a swf, it is called a portfolio. The swf is highly interactive, just like a website, if not more.

However there is a problem, the users that run for example iOS cannot see this interactive file inside the pdf.

My question is, how does (if it does) Adobe Experience Manager helps with this?, for example, does it provides a way to develop an app in html that can be downloaded, and then executed while offline to access the interactive content?.

 

Thanks.

I see.. I'm new to AEM, so correct me if I'm wrong, isn't AEM a CMS?, I mean, everything is in a website, isn't?.

I want clients to be able to download <something> and that something needs to be multiplatform and interactive.

You can use LiveCycle Es Document Servive APIs to work with portfilios. You want to work with Assembler Service and its API. 

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/programLC/help/index.html

See Assembler Service in this doc. Using Aem with LC, you can work with portfilios. However, neither tool will help you run SWF on IDevices.

Just out of curiosity One of requirement specified from leo is they should be able to work offline. Does AEM - LC connector take care of it?

Yeah, I'm using LC right now, it works just fine.

 

Now I wonder, how does AEM and LC interact?.

 

Thanks.

I'd like to know that too.

If it works offline, in detail, how does it work?, what kind of format uses?.

You can use LC connector from AEM to get both tools to talk to each other. See: 

http://helpx.adobe.com/livecycle/help/aem/aem-livecycle-connector.html

However -- you can also write you own AEM service that consumes a SOAP Stack exposed by a LC Service. I wrote an article for this. It uses the LC Output Service as an example. See: 

http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/integrating-livecycle-cq-applications.html

When writing your own AEM Service that talks to LC via web services - you have finer control over the behaviour. 

For those wondering - we also have a community article that goes from LC to AEM. See:

http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/custom-sling-servlets11.html

Therefore you can write an AEM service that send data to LC and a custom LC component that talks to AEM.

That's cool, but I still want to know one crucial thing: the final output of this tool is still a website right?, an online site, like any other, am I right?.

A website is one of many AEM uses. It can do much more as well such as workflows, routing digital assets via workflows, handling to Digital Asset Management, services, and so on. Some people also use AEM to write custom servlets to address specific use cases. When you take full advantage of AEM using custom services based on OSGi implementations, there is not too much that AEM cannot do to address specific web content requirements. 

I recommend reading this book for AEM. It's really good:

Its available now from Adobe Press in both hardcopy and eBook.
