Available on Adobe labs is the prerelease of a Component Development tool that you may find useful when you create custom components for LiveCycle ES and LiveCycle ES2. In a nutshell, the tool simplifies the workflow to create the component.xml file and build the JAR file to deploy to LiveCycle ES2. Check out the tool here.
What are custom components you ask? Custom components consist of Java code that you expose as reusable components in LiveCycle ES2. For example, you can create a custom component that provides custom email capabilities to extend LiveCycle ES2. You can reuse the component in business processes you want to automate using LiveCycle Workbench ES2.
For more information about developing custom components, see Programming with LiveCycle ES2 Help. For information about creating processes, see Application Development Using Livecycle Workbench ES2 Help.
Please feel free to comment on the tool here.
Applications developed using Flex for data capture experiences are referred to as Flex applications, and often informally called Flex forms. You create Flex applications for LiveCycle Workspace ES2 for interesting data capture experiences; or simply because you require an alternative to PDF forms and HTML forms. Check out the walkthrough in the Creating Flex Applications Enabled for LiveCycle Workspace ES2 guide here.
Hot off the press! New Quick Starts are available for configuring operations from the Forms and Reader Extensions services.
Click here to see the complete list of Quick Starts. Don’t know what Quick Starts are? Well, check out this previous entry.
Developing LiveCycle ES2 applications for LiveCycle ES2 or client-side applications are easier with Quick Starts. What are Quick Starts you ask? It depends…
- If you are a developer using Workbench ES2 , Quick Starts are short narratives that demonstrate how to configure operations together to solve a use case Workbench ES2.
- If you are a programmer, Quick Starts are code snippets that describe how to invoke a service operation programmatically using Java API, web services and LiveCycle ES2 remoting.
For instance, have you ever wondered how to create a process in Workbench ES2 to send the output from merging a form design with data to a network printer, or how to write Java code to encrypt a PDF file? If so, you’ll be happy to find out how by clicking here. In the future, we’ll be posting more Quick Starts for LiveCycle ES2 to this web page. Stay tuned!
Just in time for some good weekend reading! The following help systems are now available in Japanese:
Recently, when I was automating a process, part of the requirement was to merge XML data with a form design that was created in Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES. When you are merging a form design with data from an XML file, you can use either the Forms service or Output service in LiveCycle ES. Depending on how you use the resultant merged form design and data, determines which service best meets your requirements.
After installing LiveCycle ES, there are a number of URLs that you use to access various LiveCycle ES web applications. Here’s a cheat sheet for those URLs.
