LiveCycle in action
A common question relates to file size when creating PDF forms or any PDF documents. When using Adobe LiveCycle Designer and saving a form as PDF the fonts used are embedded by default in the PDF. This can cause quite heart stopping file sizes even with very simple forms. One way of making a smaller […]

LiveCycle ES2: UnsupportedClassVersionError: (oracle/jdbc/OracleDriver) bad major version at offset=6
If you are attempting to configure Adobe LiveCycle server using the LiveCycle Configuration Manager (LCM) with an Oracle database, you may encounter the following exception during the DB configuration step:
Caused by: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: (oracle/jdbc/OracleDriver) bad major version at offset=6 at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClassImpl(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java:258) at java.security.SecureClassLoader.defineClass(SecureClassLoader.java:151) at java.net.URLClassLoader.defineClass(URLClassLoader.java:589) at java.net.URLClassLoader.access$400(URLClassLoader.java:123) at java.net.URLClassLoader$ClassFinder.run(URLClassLoader.java:1034) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(AccessController.java:279) at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:491) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:631) at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:349) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:597) at java.lang.Class.forNameImpl(Native Method) at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:130) at com.adobe.livecycle.cdv.validator.DBValidator.validateDB(DBValidator.java:174)
This error can occur if you are not using the correct Oracle DB driver, or the correct Java JDK for your platform.
You should check the Oracle DB driver and JDK version required in the relevant platform matrix. With LiveCycle ES2 for example the platform matrix is located here:
So if you were to install LiveCycle ES2 on AIX 5.3 with WebSphere 7, you should be using the 64-bit JDK 1.6 SR7 provided by WebSphere (WAS_HOME/AppServer/java), and the ojdbc6.jar Oracle driver.
Be sure to set the JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables as instructed in http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/prepareinstallsingle.pdf
Look at these videos that demonstrate how you can use LiveCycle ES to build a process and an AIR application to publish tweets to a corporate Twitter account where you have control on what’s published or not. Part 1 focuses on building the client with Flash Builder 4 with the LC Service Discovery plugin. In part 2 you will see how to archive all tweets in a PDF/A format within LiveCycle Content Services.

As many people know, e-Invoicing is gaining a lot of traction these days in order to save money. In general many of the solutions use PDF as the format for the electronic invoice. But there is PDF and PDF. We have created a sample electronic Invoice in PDF format that is more then just a digital invoice, and also focuses on the experience of the recipient in addition to the ability to exchange structured data. Have a look at a video that includes a demo. If you would like to download the sample and play with it yourself, here it is.
