Is it possible for Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8 connect to the Web Services through over SSL? .. .. i.e. In "New Data Connection --> Get Data Description from: WSDL File" .. and WSDL File : " https:// web-services/ Service?WSDL" .
while executing the data connection (over https) xfa.connectionSet.DatConnection1.execute(0); it gives error.
"Error reading from the file Service?WSDL"
Yes you can have a WSDL using https protocol. Normally it is setup on a different port so the port number might be required in your case. Also it looks like there is a space between the / and the word Service ..... there is no spaces in the wsdl (might be put there by the forum).
The version is Live Cycle Designer ES 8.2.
I would like to know whether web service over https/SSL with self
signed certificate works with PDF form Data connection or we require a
certificate signed by Authority.
I am using adobe 9.0, I have the same problem of making web services connection in https.
The web services work fine in http but not in https. Is it due to cert problem or anything else?
Thanks in advance.
Reader is very picky with SSL certs.
In case of doubt install your CA cert and all the certs in the cert chain manually in the OS keystore.
Just one question, can you access the WSDL in a browser?
Thanks for your reply.
I am using Adobe Lifecycle Designer ES2 9.0. I can access the web service in http but not in https,
while I can access the web service from browser in either http or https.
Then probably the SSL cert isn't being accepted by your Reader / Acrobat.
Have you tried to manually import the whole chain of certs into your OS's keystore?
No I don't.
It all depends on your Operating system.
If you're using Windowns then double click the SSL cert and install it from there, Its quite self-explanetory, the only concern you need to have it to be sure to put the Root-CA in the right place (authorized root CAs).
I have imported the cert. But the problem still persists.
In the Adobe LiveCycle Designer, when i make a new Data Connection for WSDL.
If I key in http://server_IP:port/webservices/webmethod?WSDL, it works.
But If I key in https://server_IP:ssl_port/webservices/webmethod?WSDL,
it prompted back
Cannot load "https://server_IP:ssl_port/webservices/webmethod?WSDL". Check that the path is correct and that the file
is a valid WSDL file. Also ensure you have access rights to the file.
