Refer to the getDocuments method of this class. You can get all the attachments using Java code.

You can do this but with two separate commands. You can not send both PDF and XML in the same command.

You have to call the send email function twice, one with PDF and other with XML.

The Servlet will receive two separate requests to process.

I did not follow your question

Once you attach the attachments to PDF, then they will become part of the PDF just like the data on the PDF. There is no link to source location where you attached the files from. That means after you add the attchments, if you change the source file of attachment,  the changes will not reflect on the PDF attachment.

You can access the attachments in servlet/ PDF itself as if they were part of the PDF.

I don't know whether I am explaining you in a better way..

Thanks

Imagine that i send a PDF to a servlet with one file attached. Once in the servlet (in my case a java servlet) i would like to extract this file attached from the pdf just using Java code...is it possible?
