You can have them in the PDF (so that they are not stored in the DB). There are other services that exist to allow you to extract the attachments (see the processFormSubmission in Forms or the Execute DDX in Foundation). Once you have the files extracted, you can use the File Utilities in Foundation to create a directory and write these attachments out to the file system.
Yes ...you attach them using the paperclip then you can use one of these two methods to get the attachments out. Note that you have to modify the submit button to send back PDF not XDP. Then you can get the attchments out of the PDF using Assembler (a DDX control file is required) or processFormSubmission.
If you still are having issues send the LCA file and the PDF with attachments to this email address and I will have a look.
Hi,<br /><br />In fact, it doesn't work. The file attachments are still embed in the pdf.<br /><br />I use the "Invoke DDX on one document" service after the "FormSubmission" service in my submit service.<br /><br />I though it was working because when I click on the paper clip the attachments doesn't appear anymore. I use the "getPDFproperties" service after the DDX operation to check for attachments in my document. The answer is false, there are no attachments.<br /><br />But the form still make the size of the attachments and I can see the attachments in the GDS.<br /><br />My DDX document : <br /><br /><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><br /><DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/" ><br /> <PDF result="outdoc"><br /> <NoFileAttachments/> <br /> <PDF source="inDoc"/><br /> </PDF><br /></DDX><br /><br />For the DDX service : <br />My input is the output document from the processFormSubmission.<br />My output is an new document called outdoc.<br /><br />I use the getPDFproperties on the outdoc document.<br /><br />Did I make a mistake ?<br /><br />I'll look to other solution like upload my files using a web service(but it seems not easy) or to delete the attachments from the database or the GDS when the process is completed or terminated (it seems even harder and risky).<br /><br />Thanks for your help.
