Debugging Mobile Form

Logging in Mobile Form or any application for that matter is of utmost importance. It helps our customers in debugging the various issues in forms including performance. Mobile Form is a distributed application. It has a server component that generates data for the XFA runtime. XFA runtime is a javascript implementation of XFA reference that runs inside the browser and interprets the data generated by the Mobile Form server to render an XFA template and data in html5. In distributes scenario, logging helps a lot in keeping tab at what is going on at various sites.

A lot of times you have a need to extract or import the data from Excel file into LiveCycle form in a programmatic manner. To accomplish this I have written a simple component. This component makes use of Apache POI classes to extract data from the Excel file. The sample component is not generic for all Excel files, but it was written for extracting data from a specific Excel file. With little modifications you can get this code to work with any Excel file. The code creates a map of xml documents where each xml document corresponds to a row in the excel document. You can deploy this component using workbench and use it as part of your process.

For the instructions, read this blog post.

Optimizing Mobile Forms Performance

Livecycle ES4 Mobile Forms renders forms in the HTML5 format. The resultant output could be large depending on factors like the form size and images in the form. To optimize the data transfer, the recommended approach is to compress the HTML response using the Web Server from which the request is being served. This approach reduces the response size, network traffic, and the time required to stream data between the server and client machines.
This article describes the steps required to enable compression for the Apache Web Server 2.0 32 bit, with JBoss.

Mobile Form profile

Mobile Form enables LiveCycle XFA forms on mobile devices. It does it by rendering XFA Form to Html5 document.

As per Sling website, Apache Sling is a web framework that uses a Java Content Repository, such as Apache Jackrabbit, to store and manage content. Sling applications use either scripts or Java servlets, selected based on simple name conventions, to process HTTP requests in a RESTful way.

Mobile Form has a service that generates HTML snippet from XFA form. That html snippet, along with the xfaform css and js, can be embedded into any web page.

Future of Flex – Whitepaper from Adobe

Moderator’s note: Although this blog post is not specific to LiveCycle, the Adobe enterprise community will likely find it useful. We’re taking the liberty of sharing it (with due thanks to Holly Schinsky).


 


There have been a lot of questions about the viability and future of Flex recently, and Adobe has published an official whitepaper today detailing their support for Flex going forward. The paper also contains details regarding Flash runtime support, Flash Builder support and other Apache contributions including the Falcon compiler. I believe the paper is a must read and can be found HERE.

Find your OSGi-ready enterprise (thirdparty) libraries

- Saket Agarwal

Ok, this is  going to be a short one…

While building custom OSGi bundles or components over the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (which contains the Apache Felix OSGi container) or any other OSGi container for that matter, you may often come across a need to access and hence introduce OSGi bundles of other enterprise thirdparty libraries within the container.

A common way to achieve this is to create a wrapper bundle for these libraries using the BND  tool. However, thanks to SpringSource, we already have the OSGi-ready versions of hundreds of open source enterprise libraries that are commonly used/needed, hosted for public use.  So, you can easily search for the library you are looking for here, before creating one on your own (in case the one you are looking for does not exist – which should be quite rare).
