How do I submit xml data from a form to live cycle


Former Community Member

This is my first post, so I'm not sure if this is the right forum.

I have a flex app, which calls a pdf. You enter the info on the pdf and then click submit. Now I need to know what i have to do to submit the information (not via email)to a live cycle process and which live cycle process I must submit it to?

I'm assuming I must using some sort of servlet to submit the info?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Ross,

Yes, you need a servlet that gets the submitted info from PDF, and then that servlet internally need to invoke your process.

There are couple of ways you can submit the data to your servlet, either as PDF/XML/XDP. If you are looking for submitting PDF/XDP, then one need to have either Acrobat S.W (Standard or Professional) or you need to apply ReaderExtensions on those PDFs.

Hope I answered your questions.

aspsatap is correct but that is not the only way. Before we investigate all possibilities it is importanta to know what you are going to do in livecycle and if you have to submit the whole PDF or just the data.
