Displaying PDF documents/forms from Adobe LiveCycle in the browser

Users of Adobe LiveCycle quite regularly interact with PDF documents. Some examples are:

  • Rendering customised documents for print purposes
  • Creating PDF forms for on- and offline use to collect data for further processing
  • Rendering pre-filled PDF forms to send out to customers/users for completion and physical signature etc.

In a lot of cases those PDF documents are what’s called an XFA-based PDF form/template. XFA is Adobe’s XML Forms Architecture and a proprietary technology to describe form information. I spare you the technical details, but essentially quite often those XFA-based forms get wrapped into a PDF document, this is done by rendering the XFA information over a PDF page background.
