Remote PDF generator - is it possible?

Avatar

Level 4

Hi!

I would like to install PDF generator on a dedicated machine and other LiveCycle components to another machine. How to make Process mgmt aware of PDF generator location?

Of course, I can make PDF generator calls using web service component. But it seems to me a bad solution.

Is this possible at all?

LiveCycle is designed with the expectation that all of its pieces will reside in the same JVM (scalability being achieved via clustering).  If you want to split off certain components and run them separately, then you would have to make certain choices which might not be to your liking.

In cases where LiveCycle PDF Generator is installed separately from the JVM hosting LiveCycle Process Management, calling PDFG via SOAP is the recommended way to go.

Thanks for the answer. It scarried me a bit. Do I understand it well that all these service components:

Assembler:

- InvokeDDX

- Invoke DDX on OneDocument

Conver PDF

- toImage2

- toPS2

DocConverter

- convert to pdf/a

- validate pdf/a

PDF Utilities

- clone pdf

- convert pdf do xdp

- convert xdp to pdf

- get pdf properties

- get pdf save mode

- multiple clones of pdf

- set pdf save mode

Distiller

- CreatePDF2

Generate PDF

- CreatePDF2

- ExportPDF2

- HtmlFileToPDF

- HtmlToPDF2

These all I can throw away and tell to our suppliers: don't use them and write your own ones calling PDFG, Assmebler using SOAP?

I can't believe it is true 😮
