We are upgrading to ES4 and not everything is working so I wonder if this is something I need to do? As I recall from installing ES2 this was also an option but the description seems to refer only to LC ES Version 7.0/8.0, that is, not ES2.

Did this get rolled into Correspondence Management or get dropped? The key feature I'm interested in is setting up the comment server for the comments in Reader/Acrobat so that reviewers can use the Reader/Acrobat commenting tools and see all the other reviewers' comments. Reader/Acrobat allow setting the server but ES2 had no API for having the process set that value. It was my understanding that Managed Review and Approval Solution Accelerator in ES2.5 provided that API. Was that correct and i...

Jasmin, yes that's correct. I should have stated the exection environment. In Steve's Feb 25 post he stated Here is my execute script code to convert a list of attachments to a map of attachments which you can then pass to a Render step:I re-read that a few days ago and thought, "Oh, I wonder if he means the Render step as in the FormsService/renderPDFForm process?" So I created a map variable (sub-type document) and populated it with a few documents and then attempted to execute the renderPDFFo...

Steve, where do you put adobe-livecycle-client.jar in you app server? I tried putting it in LC_HOME\jboss\server\lc_turnkey\lib and get a java.lang.LinkageError. See this discussion thread for stack traces.

I have an archive file with three processes that take a map of documents and converts it to a portfolio (the map keys are the document names). One of the processes builds the DDX file from the map keys and an input variable for the portfolio name. I don't know where to post it but send me an email and I'll attach it to my reply.

Sunil, you want to look at the "Customizing the LiveCycle® Workspace ES User Interface" document at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/customizeworkspaceui.pdf. The workspace is a Flash component. For ES4 there's an option to run the workspace in HTML5 which might be more productive long-term.

Sunil, I guess I can see your question as an exercise in testing the completeness of the patExecContext implementation. However, some of the functions in the XPath Builder are just attempts to expose a Java construct to a user who doesn't know Java. For example, adding an item to a map object in XPath builder is done by setting Location to /process_data/map[@id='mapKey'] and Expression to the desired value. In Java that's just map.put("mapKey", valueObject);On the other hand, XPath selectors can...

I have a process that needs to use the Approval Container UI and I'd like to add some attachments to the form but they don't show up when the user opens the task in the Workspace. According to the Workspace Help at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/workspaceHelp/index.html?content=000014.html all I need to do is check the 'Show Attachments' check-box but if I also choose the Approval Container for the User Interface then no Attachments tab appears. In fact, none of the tabs that used to ...

Forgive me if I seem obtuse, but why would you want to use XPath functions (that's what serialize, concat, and count are) when there are perfectly good Java alternatives that will be so much easier to use. Java is, after all, the language used in executeScript. Serialize is just toString(), concatenate is just + or .concat() (I'm assuming you're running Java 6 on the web app server). The count function is just length() or size() methods or, for arrays, the length property. If you really need to ...

I have a review task that needs to be assign to multiple users. However, I need the application user to control the assignment list. The Participants section of the 'Assign Multiple Tasks' service allows the programmer to search the directory or to specify a user list asset or a string or an XPath expression but doesn't give any clue as to what the XPath expression should be. I would like to specify, for example, a variable of type list, subtype string containing the comonName of the users to be...

Thanks for clarifying that, Luigi. The problem seems to be a local Workbench issue in the Workbench's SOAP runtime. All the processes on the server are (or seem to be) fine.

I don't quite follow what you are recommending but this is really a nuisance. We can record the process and the play back works just fine, all the way to the end. There's a post to this forum that only shows up on Google Groups that points to the Apache Axis SOAPFaultBuilder source code (the first line of the 'Caused by' stack trace). The only place I can find that class in my setup (32-bit Eclipse Indigo with LC Workbench plugin) is in eclipese\.metadata\.plugins\org.apache.axis_1.4.0.v20100508...

I have an SQL query that returns about 2.3 MB XML variable. That works fine but if I set that variable to be an output variable and invoke the process from Workbench I get an InvocationTargetException from org.apache.axis.message.SOAPFaultBuilder.createFault (see below). I'm running Workbench ES2 9.5 as a Java plugin in Eclipse Indigo (32-bit) on a Windows 7 64-bit system with 8 GB memory. The same problem occurs on a Windows XP SP3 system with 4GB memory. There are no error messages in server.l...

patExecContext is an instance of com.adobe.workflow.pat.service.PATExecutionContextImpl found in adobe-wkf-client.jar which in turn is in (on a turn-key JBoss on Windows system) \Adobe\Adobe LiveCycle ES2\jboss\server\lc_turnkey\deploy\adobe-livecycle-jboss.ear. I unpacked all that and added the necessary jar files to a Java project in Eclipse so I could at least use the context helper to discover the methods in the object. IIRC there wasn't much really useful there - mostly the accessor methods...

The link you provided does not match the image above. Do you have a schema (.xsd) for the data that will be bound to the form? Usually a form with repeating rows has a schema associated with it. See for example Ben Lyon's Adobe Developer Connection article on binding rows with repeating elements to a subform. In your form, there would only be one data row and it would be bound to the repeating element in the schema or sample XML. You might have to play around with the cell borders to make sure t...

After re-installing LiveCycle ES2 and re-installing ES2 SP2 up to the point of completing all the Configuration Manager steps (including running the MigrateArchiveSessionIds tool) the exact same result was obtained - no processes could be started. So, after re-reading the SP2 instructions and discovering the very last step is "Re-start the server" I did so and now my applications work. This prompts the question, "What about the SP2 install requires a server re-start and what could cause the serv...

Thanks for the post. We re-installed LiveCycle for this but I'll try your suggestions if the problem recurs. We are using the turnkey JBoss server with SQL Server database. I think I did look at the Components in Workbench and didn't see anything unusual. I found out how to get JBoss to append start-up log to existing log file - just set the 'Append' parameter to 'true' at top of conf\jboss-log4j.xml.

On a related subject: the ES2 SP2 installation instructions state that while running ConfigurationManager you must go to a command prompt at a certain point (after initializing database and before deploying components) and run the MigrateArchiveSessionIDs tool. If after doing so I need to re-run ConfigurationManager and re-initialize the database, do I also need to re-run the MigrateArchiveSessionIDs tool? What does the MigrateArchiveSessionIDs tool do, anyway? The installation instructions are ...

Believe or not, it's true. In the XSLT Source Text Input and Testing wizard, if you delete the test data from the text area in the Test XML tab, then the XSL transform will fail with the error 'Content not allowed in prolog' when the process executes. I wasted a day and a half trying to figure this out - hope I've saved someone else the trouble.

I'm running Acrobat 9.4 if that makes any difference. This question was spurred by another discussion on inserting an item into a list. Basically loadXML is erasing the attributes on the reference node. For example, if domNode is a node in the data DOM and newXML is a replica of domNode's XML with some child elements changed and newXML_str is the string representation of newXML, then the statement domNode.loadXML(newXML_str,true,true) eliminates the attributes in domNode. A commenter in the abov...

Well, that feature is not very well documented. Can you give me a reference for that information, preferably including a page number? I can't find any information on how XFA treats attributes other than this in http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/xml/data_handling_2.0.pdf:Some data-loader options cause the data-loader to load only a subset of data from the XML-data-DOM into the XFAdata-DOM. The result is that the ignored data is still in the XML-data-DOM but is not accessible through t...

Well I rebuilt the data to include the items I was attempting to insert so that issue has gone away. Now all I have to do is add items to or delete items from a list and think I've uncovered a bug in Acrobat 9.4. I'm using E4X now to avoid a lot of resolveNode calls and it's working like a charm except for one thing: loadXML is not preserving the attributes on the root list node. I have an E4X var that represents a node that has attributes and repeating child elements. Then I use resolveNode to ...

The documentation for this method is abysmal. I added comment on one of the versions but it was deleted. The string argument is the actual XML, not a file name, and the "Reference_Node" is any XML node (data or form, though I only use the data DOM and can't vouch for form DOM).

That's not been my experience. I've updated the data DOM using loadXML with data from a WSDL connection and the form doesn't display the new information unless I explicitly call xfa.form.remerge(). There's nothing automatic about it, otherwise there'd be no point in making it part of the API. My problem, as I said, is that the list object from resolveNodes("list.writer[*]") seems to be a copy of the 'writer' nodes in the list and not the actual list itself. I can call the list.insert method with...

I know I have to call xfa.form.remerge() to get the changed data DOM to appear in the form _after_ I've updated the data DOM. My problem is in updating the data DOM. I can add nodes using assignNode or loadXML but I want to insert a node into a list at a specific location - which appears to work - but the updated list does not appear in the data DOM, only the original list.
