Hi,

Is there a way to programatically convert XDP form into Dynamic PDF form using LiveCycle Service APIs?

Thanks,

Hi Steve,

Thank you for the reply. I looked into the API and don't think it will fit my needs. The form I am refering will be used as "template" which will allow user to fill in at runtime. In Designer, we can either save such form as XDP or Dynamic PDF form. In my case, I want to have both types of the same form for different usage. Right now all my forms are created as XDP. Instead of saving them to Dynamic PDF form one by one manually through Designer, is there a way to programically convert?

Appreciated!

Take a look at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/programLC/help/index.html and the API Quick Starts > Output Service API Quick Starts.

Quick Start (EJB mode): Creating a PDF document based on an application XDP file using the Java API

I think this will get it done. Give it a go.
