Submitting PDF to a servlet

I have written a simple servlet which writes the submitted pdf to the c drive of the server. I have written the instructions in the pdf document which can be found here
Click here to access the pdf
Download the war file
Deploy it on your server
Design your form with a submit button configured to submit “PDF” and pointing to the url
The url should be of the following format
http://:/SaveToFile/SavePdf
in my case it was http://ginger:8080/SaveToFile/SavePdf. Where ginger:8080 is my server and port no.
Save the form and hit the submit button
The form will get submitted to the servlet which writes the pdf to the c drive of the server
Let me know if you need any more help

Adding Attachments to PDF Form

Hi
Just finished helping a customer who wanted to add attachments to PDF using javascript. There are 2 ways to add attachments to a PDF form
1- using the attachments tab
2- Using javascript- with the help of a button the user selects the file to add to the pdf
I have included the PDF which allows the user to add attachment , view the attachment and deleted the selected attachment from the form.
Please click here to access the formPDF Form
PS- THIS WILL ONLY WORK WHEN YOU OPEN THE FORM WITH ACROBAT.IF YOU WANT IT TO WORK IN READER YOU WILL NEED TO APPLY USAGE RIGHTS USING THE READER EXTENSIONS ON THE SERVER

Using Namespace in Workbench

The xml returned by webservices invariably use namespaces. To access data contained in the xml you would need to declare namespace . To declare namespace you would select the process,right click the process select properties, click the advanced tab to create namespaces
For example the following is a example of namespace declared in workbench
greg http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/
where greg is the namespace prefix
I have included a simple process which makes a web service call to Amazon, using namespace I get data out of the response. The following is an example of using namespace in workbench
/process_data/xmlData/greg:Envelope/greg:Body/cole:ItemLookupResponse/cole:Items/cole:Item/cole:ItemAttributes

Modifying email when emailing a form

Very common request – I am able to email a pdf form great, but how do I change the email recipients,Subject,Body. I found a very useful post on Stefan Cameron’s blog
http://forms.stefcameron.com/2008/08/28/submitting-form-data-by-email/
I copied his code to create a similar form
The form is posted hereClick here to get the pdf
This form submits the whole pdf as email attachment.
If you are using Acrobat 8.x and above you will have no problem is testing the form out
But if you are using Reader to test the form, it will not work unless you Apply Reader Rights
The instruction to apply Reader rights are here
