Document Builder is WYSIWYG editor for DDX and ships with LiveCycle Workbench ES2. In previous releases of LiveCycle ES you had to hand code DDX; Document Builder gives you tools to design, validate and test DDX files in a graphical manner.
What is DDX?
To specify documents that you want the Assembler service to produce, you use an XML-based language called Document Description XML (DDX). DDX is a declarative markup language whose elements represent building blocks of documents. These building blocks include PDF pages and other elements such as comments, bookmarks, and styled text. The DDX document can be considered a template for the document(s) that you want the Assembler service to produce.
Document Builder Features:
- WYSIWYG editor for designing DDX
- Full integration with Workbench and Assembler’s Invoke DDX service
- Schema Validation
- Ability to test DDX and to preview results
- Templates for the most commonly used Assembler operations
- Design and Source modes
