I have a similar requirement. I have created the form in Adobe live cycle designer 7.1.
My requirement : Using Java i have to fill some fields on the form. How can i achieve this ?
Any pointers on this would really help me.
I know that this is an old thread -- but programmatically merging data with PDF forms using LiveCycle ES is very easy. Basically if you want to create a non-interactive PDF document, then you can use the Output service. If you want to create a PDF that lets users modify form fields (an interactive PDF form), then use the Forms service. There is a discussion on how you can do this task in Programming with LiveCycle ES. You can access this topic at the following URL:
This uses the Forms service - but the focus of the topic is really about creating an XML data source at run-time to merge with the form.
This topic uses classes located in the org.w3c.dom.* Java package to create a dynamic data source to merge with the PDF document.
