where to get com.adobe.idp?

Hi,



I see, that there's a method:




com.adobe.workflow.pat.service.PATExecutionContext.getProcessDataDocumentValue(java.lang.String)



...whose return-type is
com.adobe.idp.Document.

Now, I wonder, where to get the mysterious com.adobe.idp package.

I learned, that it's bundled with the LiveCycle PDFGenerator product (http://www.adobeforums.com/cgi-bin/webx/.3bbf9866). But we don't have that product installed and don't intend to buy it. In other words: the
getProcessDataDocumentValue is pretty useless unless you buy PDFGenerator, isn't it?



What I'm currently trying to do is access a PDF-Document, get its data via
PDFDocument.exportFormData and do something with the data received. Is there a workaround which includes not having to use
com.adobe.idp.Document?



Regards,

Steve

Hi Steve



Have a look in a jar called adobe-common.jar, which you will find in:

\Adobe\LiveCycle\components\csa\common\lib\adobe



It's installed as part of Workflow, so as long as you add it to your development classpath (so you can compile), you should find it with no problems at runtime.
