LiveCycle ES 3 Release Now Available

Dave Welch, Senior Director – LiveCycle

We are pleased to announce the release of Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite 3 (ES3). LiveCycle ES3 contains the document and data services capabilities, including electronic forms and business processes, which were formerly part of the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (ADEP), a brand that is being retired.

The new LiveCycle ES3 release incorporates:

  • Document services capabilities available with ADEP and the recent ADEP Document Services service pack 1
  • LiveCycle Data Services 4.6.1
  • Updates to LiveCycle Connectors for Microsoft® SharePoint® and IBM® FileNet

LiveCycle offers a number of components that help extend the value of existing back-end systems by better engaging users, streamlining processes, managing correspondence, and strengthening security.

LiveCycle Output ES2 and PDF ISO Standards

– Jayan Kandathil

Adobe LiveCycle Output ES2 lets you generate PDF documents conforming to the PDF/A (archive) ISO (International Organization for Standardization) document archival standard. Other ISO PDF standards such as PDF/X (graphic arts), PDF/E (engineering) and PDF/UA (accessibility) are not supported by Output ES2.

PDF/A has “Revision Numbers” (1 and 2) and each Revision Number can have “Conformance Levels” (“a” for advanced, “b” for basic and “u” for unicode). Revision Number “2″ is not supported by Output ES2.

This webinar by Adobe’s Rick Borstein does a good job of explaining these standards.

More information on PDF/A standards are available at the PDF/A Competence Center.
