LiveCycle update: Forms, documents, and the Adobe Marketing Cloud

2013 was an exciting year for LiveCycle. I want to take a moment to update you on how we are continuing to invest and innovate in forms and documents, and provide an overview of our 2014 plans. In 2013, we introduced LiveCycle ES4, a major release that extends rich form and document experiences to mobile users. Shortly afterwards, we began integrating these capabilities into Adobe Experience Manager, enabling organizations to easily create, manage, and publish forms and documents in conjunction with a market leading web content management solution.

Arun Anantharaman, the Senior Vice President Adobe Digital Marketing Products, shares more about the 2014 plans, in this blog post.

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.
