Generate Document Of Record (DOR) programmatically

This article illustrates the use of the API to generate Document of Record programmatically. Document of Record is a PDF version of the data captured in Adaptive Form.

  1. The following is the code snippet. The first line gets the DOR Service.
  2. Then we set the DoROptions.
  3. Then we invoke the render method of the DoRService and pass the DoROptions object to the render method dorService = sling.getService(; dorOptions =  new;
	java.util.Locale locale = new java.util.Locale("en");
	dorOptions.setLocale(locale); dorResult = dorService.render(dorOptions);
	byte[] fileBytes = dorResult.getContent();
	com.adobe.aemfd.docmanager.Document dorDocument = new com.adobe.aemfd.docmanager.Document(fileBytes);
