render a xfa-based document in workspace


Level 1


  I'm wondering if process management can handle rendering of a xfa-base document and xml data inside workspace without Forms being installed.  I did a quick test by installing livecycle without forms and it failed to render a xfa-base document.  On the other hand, it worked with forms being installed.

  Looking closely, workspace is calling "Render PDF Form" to render the pdf and the subprocess will eventually call a forms component to do the merging of data.  Just want to ensure my findings is valid, and process management cannot handle xfa-base workflow without forms.

You are correct.  Forms is needed to render an xfa-based document.  Note that you can create a custom Render process that will merge the xml data with a PDF form using the importData operation of the FormDataIntegration service.
