Converting adove interacive forms.
We are currently implementing an adobe interactive forms scenario (offline) at our customer.
The initial scenario was the folllowing
1. PDF is generated on the CRM system and downloaded towards the clients PC
2. PDF is adjusted by enduser
3. When all info is added, enduser presses the submit button in the pdf, this triggers the sending of an email, with an attachment containing the filled in data in xml format.
4. PI reads the mail, takes the XML and processes the data.
The scenario was quiet easy to enable.
Now the customer wants the PDF to be mailed instead of or toghetger with the xml representing the data. Reason for this is that they want to pdf to be stored inside the initial transaction (service order) in SAP (archiving reasons).
The PI system is just acting as a mail client. When the mail is read, the pdf needs to be converted into an xml, representing the data. I would like to use the adobe document service to convert the pdf.
So the system that generates the pdf (=CRM) and the system that needs to convert it (PI) is different.
Can the adobe document service by addressed from within a standard java or abap class.
Any idea whether this can be done and how?
