Hi,



We are generating forms using renderPdfForm and assembleService(for flattening and assembling documents). It seems that the pdf's generated increases in size over time. However it seems to help restarting the server.



I've had pdf's of size 6mb going as low to 500kb after a Adobe server restart.



Have anybody experienced the same issue?



Kind regards



Lars

That is a known issue and there are fixes for it. Have a look at this blog post:



http://blogs.adobe.com/livecycle/2009/03/post.html



If you cannot or do not want to install the patch, I have a style sheet that can be run against the XDP to get rid of those additional lines.



This explains why you are having those issues. The file size is so big that you are taking all of the memory in your JVM.

Hi Paul,



I would very much like that style sheet, can you please send it to: laha@ementor.dk ?



One more thing, can theese lines slow down processes like RenderPdfForm and AssembleService as well?



Thanks,



Lars

Absolutely as the size of the XDP is so big that the file takes up most of the available memory. Then add to that the size of you data file!



I just sent the style sheet ....

Can this bug lead to varying pdf file sizes? As I mentioned in the initial message, I've seen the same pdf file grow from about 500kb to 6MB over time. After server restart the generated pdf was back to 500 kb.

Typically the size of the PDF does not grow very much (remember that it is a repeating line thousands of times). The compresion in the PDF reduces the multiple lines to a single string so the size does not get impacted very much.

Sounds like you may have a different issue. Can you post one of those large PDFs and we can see what is it it. If you do not want to post it in this public forum send it to livecycle8@gmail.com.

I've installed the 8.2.1 SP2 update and still encounter this bug. Any ideas as to why it's still happening?

Thanks!

Have you removed the lines manually or by a tool, I'm not sure the update will actually remove the already existing lines for you, but not sure about that.
