The following Quick Starts are available for the PDF Utilities service.

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Converting a PDF document to an XDP document using the Java API

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Converting an XDP document to a PDF document using the Java API

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Retrieving PDF document properties using the Java API

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Setting the save style for a PDF document using the Java API

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Sanitizing PDF documents

AEM Forms operations can be performed using the AEM Forms strongly-typed API and the connection mode should be set to SOAP.

Note: Quick Starts located in Programming with AEM forms are based on the Forms Server operating system. However, if you are using another operating system, such as UNIX, replace Windows-specific paths with paths that are supported by the applicable operating system. Likewise, if you are using another J2EE application server, ensure that you specify valid connection properties. (See Setting connection properties.)

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Converting a PDF document to an XDP document using the Java API

The following code example converts a PDF document to an XDP document. (See Converting PDF Documents into XDP Documents.

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Setting the save style for a PDF document using the Java API

The following code example sets the save mode for fast web viewing and then passes the PDF document to the Encryption service where it is encrypted. The encrypted PDF document that is saved for fast web viewing is saved as a PDF file named FastWebViewLoan.pdf. (See Setting PDF Document Save Modes.)

Quick Start (SOAP mode): Converting a document to a PDF/A-2b document using the Java API

The following Java code example converts a PDF document named Loan.pdf to a PDF/A-2b document that is saved as a PDF file named LoanArchive.pdf. (See Converting Documents to PDF/A Documents.)

/* 
 * This Java Quick Start uses the SOAP mode and contains the following JAR files 
 * in the class path: 
 * 1. adobe-docconverter-client.jar 
 * 2. adobe-livecycle-client.jar 
 * 3. adobe-usermanager-client.jar 
 * 
 *  These JAR files are located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/sdk/client-libs/common 
 * 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/sdk/client-libs/jboss 
 * 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/jboss/bin/client 
 * 
 * If you want to invoke a remote AEM Forms instance and there is a 
 * firewall between the client application and AEM Forms, then it is 
 * recommended that you use the SOAP mode. When using the SOAP mode, 
 * you have to include additional JAR files located in the following 
 * path 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/sdk/client-libs/thirdparty 
 * 
 * For information about the SOAP 
 * mode and the additional JAR files that need to be included, 
 * see "Setting connection properties" in Programming 
 * with AEM Forms 
 * 
 * For complete details about the location of the AEM Forms JAR files, 
 * see "Including AEM Forms library files" in Programming 
 * with AEM Forms
