To know the reason, see this blog post.

Creating DDX from list of file names

Hi

I have written a simple component which creates a DDX from a list of file names. It is very common to create a package or assemble a map of documents. To do this you would have to create a DDX which needs to match the file names of documents in the map. To avoid all that hard work, I have a component which creates a DDX from list of file names.

The process also makes use of another component which writes out map contents to the file system

I have attached the process in the PDF file

LiveCycle ES2 Highlights – Document Builder for Assembler/DDX

Seth Reilly

Document Builder
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
