LiveCycle PDF Generator – Tips and Tricks

- Saurabh Kumar Singh, Computer Scientist at Adobe

 

Following are a few tips and workarounds for LiveCycle PDFG. Please note that the workaround marked as unsupported are not officially supported by Adobe.

  • [Unsupported] On UNIX servers customers can use 64-bit OpenOffice to do OpenOffice based conversions. The obvious benefit from this is the performance improvement we get. To achieve this just point JAVA_HOME_32 to 64 bit version of Java. Same can achieved on widows too but you may observe immediate conversion failures for other native file formats.
  • [Unsupported] Any file which can be opened by Acrobat (like a text file) can be converted to PDF using LiveCycle PDF Generator. You just need to add the comma separated file extension (for example txt for text files) in XPS to PDF file-type setting.
  • A user/administrator can directly jump to PDF Generator UI by hitting http(s)://<server-name>:<port>/pdfgui. This way a user can skip couple of clicks on UI to land on PDF Generator user interface.

Watch this space, for a lot more upcoming tips and tricks.

Content Services ES2: Improving performance

You can disable content indexing to improve Content Services ES2 performance. However, keep in mind that disabling indexing will also disable text-based search within new content. To disable indexing:
  1. In the adobe-contentservices.ear file, navigate to
    LiveCycle Content Services.ear/contentservices.war/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/model and open the contentModel.xml file for editing.
  2. Locate the following line:
    <type name=”cm:content”>
  3. Set the index enabled and tokenized properties to false
  • Change <index enabled=”true”>  to <index enabled=”false”>.
  • Change <tokenized>true </tokenised> to <tokenized>false </tokenised>.
For additional performance improvements, you can disable the conversions required for indexing. To disable these conversions:
  1. In adobe-contentservices.ear, browse to 
    contentservices.war\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\extension.
  2. Preserve a backup of the custom-metadata-extractors-context file.
  3. Delete this file from the EAR.
