Render dynamic PDF Form with attachments

Level 1
Level 1


I try to render en PDF Form based on an XDP document (dynamic form) with ES3 Forms Service Client java API (using renderPDFForm method).

A problem occures with attachments.

When plain/text (or an application/xml) files are attached, it's OK: the PDF form is rendered and.txt and .xml attachments are added (renderer by acrobat reader).

But when i try to render a pdf form with multiple attachment types like pdf and msword files: it does not work even if I change the file extension or content type (from application/pdf to application/octet-stream or plain/text) of the "attached" Document.

The rendered pdf form is corrupted and cannot be rendered by Acrobat Reader.

Adobe reader says that the file is damaged and cannot be repaired.

Thanks !

I am attaching multiple files to a dynamic PDF in ES2. I did have an issue where the server was running out of heap space in renderPDFForm. The error was in the server log. I changed the JVM settings per: and also changed the way I was creating the Map of com.adobe.idp.Documents such that the Documents were on disk instead of in memory.
