Hello,

I was trying to import xml data ( in XDP format ) to a PDF form designed with Adobe LiveCycle ES2 designer using Adobe Form Data Integration services which is available as part of Adobe LiveCycle foundation classes, but for my amazement I was receiving the following error in the server log:

com/adobe/formServer/utils/LogUtils: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/adobe/formServer/utils/LogUtils
at com.adobe.formServer.utils.CommonGibsonUtils.PDFDocumentFromDocument(CommonGibsonUtils.java:122)
at com.adobe.livecycle.formdataintegration.server.FormData.importData(FormData.java:64)

etc … etc...

And import was failing!

After endless number of trails, I have installed Adobe LiveCycle Forms, in addition to the already installed Process Management and Reader Extensions services, and only then data has been imported correctly and no error was showing in the log anymore!

But this doesn't make sense, why do I need to have Adobe LiveCycle Forms if I am just importing data using Data Integration services? Can someone explain?

Thank you in advance for your response.

Greetings,

Yasser

A while ago we built a sample that would use both Forms and Form data integrator to merge data with a Form. Here it is:

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/samples/ServiceUsageSampleFormDataManipulation.html

The error that you report is implying  that there is a class dependency between Form Data Integrator and a package called "com/adobe/formServer/utils" which is not installed (and I agree does sound like the Forms Service).

You should be able to use the Form Data integratiion service to perform basic import/export of xml data from a PDF based form template. I'll try to track down the class dependency you mention.
