Yes, it's possible. You can use a server-side component of LiveCycle called Assembler - it's designed for combining multiple documents into one.http://www.adobe.com/mea/products/livecycle/assembler/If you need assistance making this work, don't hesitate to contact us.Howardhttp://www.avoka.com

Another option is to inject a unique number into the form within the process itself.This component generates a sequential number with optional prefix and suffix, and allow you to inject it into the form.Doc: http://avoka.dnsalias.com/confluence/display/Public/Unique+ID+Generator+DSCDownload trial: http://www.avoka.com/avoka/escomponents.shtmlHoward

Hi SteveMy understanding is that deleteResource deletes the entire resource, with all its versions.What Elaine wants to do is to delete old versions of a resource, but retain the most recent version. (Elaine, please confirm.)You can get old versions of the resource using getHistory, but there is no way of removing old versions.Howard

Hi ElaineI had a quick look at the APIs.There is no exposed API for removing old versions.Therefore there is no way (at the moment) that anyone could write a utility for purging old versions.I suspect your proposed approach (i.e. delete the entire resource before uploading a new version) would be the best way to go.There may (probably is) a private API for removing old versions, but similarly to directly manipulating the database tables, it's probably not a good idea.Although if you feel this is...

AllSounds like you're describing a really unfortunate behaviour (aka bug) in LiveCycle.In short, when you select a User or a Group in the assignTask step, it displays the user/group name, but internally it actually uses the ID.Since ID's are different on different systems, your process isn't transportable across different systems.There are two workarounds:1. Use the xpath method instead, and assign to '' or '' as a string (between single quotes). assignTask will try to resolve any string it find...

Re: What would cause intermittant "unable to find service"?

HowardTreisman

- Adobe LiveCycle
HiIt sounds to me like one of the instances of Forms executable is dying due to invalid font, and is then failing for subsequent renders. The reason that it's intermittent may be that you have multiple instances of the Forms executable, and one of them has failed, and the other(s) are okay.One thing to try is to check your fonts in the underlying XML for each of your forms, because sometimes it's hard to locate all the instances of font usage. Search for:typeface="xxx"and We have some internal...

Thanks MarkSo a component to simply test the validity (well-formedness) of an arbitrary XML document would be helpful?This would save you having to write the file to the file system, and read it back again.By the way, do be careful with writing to a file and reading back. This may work doing one off testing, but you need to be careful under load, because you may get multiple process instances reading and writing the same file.Howardhttp://www.avoka.com

If this is critical for you, you can "roll your own" Email endpoint using a looping process. It will contain Email>receiveEmail, a Wait step, and a sub-process invocation.If you need more help, read this "Patterns" paper, which describes how this used to be done in the days before watch folders.The details are different, the principle is the same.http://www.avoka.com/resources/resources/TheWatchFolderPattern.pdfHowardhttp://www.avoka.com

If you're setting up a watch folder, you don't need to use a readDocument step - you just need to define an input variable of type Document, and the watch folder does the rest.I suspect you're getting an error because the WatchFolder code and your readDocument step are both trying to read the same document.howardhttp://www.avoka.com
