I need to develop an application where the user fills out an online form and a pdf is automatically created and emailed to them, a copy is also archived. Am I looking in the corect place by exploring LiveCycle PDF Generator or am I looking for something else? I am currently using php and MySQL but from the looks of it may be necesary to use XML. This is very new to me so any direction would be much appreciated.
I am in the same boat as Nils. Has anyone made any discoveries on this? I have a call in to a "specialist" at Adobe, but it will be 3-5 days before someone gets back to me. I want to collect the data using PHP/MySQL and then populate a PDF template of some sort to create a print-ready PDF that I can send to my printer.
An example of how we plan on using this is with business cards. We're going to create a business card template PDF with form fields for Name, Title, Phone, Email, etc. and then have the user enter in their information and then create a print-ready PDF we could send to the printer to get printed. I am unclear on which Adobe product would work for this. The pre-sales team at Adobe said we might want to look into InDesign server and LiveCycle. I guess the starting price tag for either of those is $10,000.
