Error Invoking adobe livecycle process from Documentum Workflow method


Level 7


I have written a documentum workflow method which generates xml files dynamically and send it to the adobe server to convert the xml file to pdf and return the pdf document.When I ran the code from my local machine it is working fine,but when I deployed the code in the Documentum Server where JBoss is the application server,the code is throwing null in getting a InvocationResponse object,

Below the code I have written

public class PDFTemplateWorkflow extends WorkflowMethod {

private static final String REQUEST_PACKAGE = "Package0";
private static final String FEE_PACKAGE = "Package1";

public int doTask(IDfWorkitem workitem, IDfProperties activityParameters,
   PrintWriter printWriter) throws Exception
   /*Read the activity parameters */
   System.out.println("Entering into doTask Method");
   String requestPackage =activityParameters.getString(REQUEST_PACKAGE);
   System.out.println("First Package is "+requestPackage);
   String feePackage =activityParameters.getString(FEE_PACKAGE);
   System.out.println("Second Package is"+feePackage);
