Prefill Service in Adaptive Forms by AEM Blog | Lhotse Technologies


In this blog, I want to share how we can use the Prefill Service feature in adaptive forms.

What is the use of Prefill Service?
It is used to prepopulate the form with given values.

How to create Prefill Service?
For creating prefill service you need to create an osgi component. For example:-
In my form I have two text boxes.

So to prefill these values while Preview, I am making the osgi component. My class name is MyPrefillAdaptiveForm.class

import com.adobe.forms.common.service.*;
import org.osgi.service.component.annotations.Component;
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
import org.w3c.dom.Document;
import org.w3c.dom.Element;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;
import javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory;
import javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource;

public class MyPrefillAdaptiveForm implements DataProvider {
private Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(MyPrefillAdaptiveForm.class);
public String getServiceName() {
return “My Prefill Service Name”;
public String getServiceDescription() {
return “My Prefill Service”;
public PrefillData getPrefillData(final DataOptions dataOptions) throws FormsException {
return new PrefillData() {
public InputStream getInputStream() {
return getData(dataOptions);
public ContentType getContentType() {
return ContentType.XML;
private InputStream getData(DataOptions dataOptions) throws FormsException {
try {
DocumentBuilderFactory docFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder docBuilder = docFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = docBuilder.newDocument();
Element rootElement = doc.createElement(“data”);
Element name = doc.createElement(“name”);
name.setTextContent(“This is Name Field”);
Element title = doc.createElement(“title”);
title.setTextContent(“This is Title Field”);
final ByteArrayOutputStream outputStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
final DOMSource source = new DOMSource(doc);
final StreamResult outputTarget = new StreamResult(outputStream);
TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer().transform(source, outputTarget);
InputStream inputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(outputStream.toByteArray());
return inputStream;
} catch (Exception e) {
logger.error(“Error while creating prefill data”, e);
throw new FormsException(e);
