ADS configuration error - PDF form not displaying for Java WebDynpro

Hi Experts,

Sub : Problem with configuring Adobe Document Services

We have installed .. NW2004s SP12 on HP-UX OS.

As of now all the services are working fine, recently started configuring "Adobe Document Services", followed all the instructions given in the guide.

Environment :


- Configuring ADS Webservice for "BASIC" Authentication, not for SSL

- Poratl (AS JAVA) and BI (AS ABAP) are running in different systems.

- Portal using UME as the data storage.

- OS is HP-UX

Configuration Check for Interactive Forms in Web Dynpro for Java


1. Checking the User and Password ---

http://<server>:<port>/AdobeDocumentServices/Config -- the system displays the version number of the Adobe document services in the response area.

2. Configured Webservice for Basic Authentication -- success

In the process of testing this configuration -- i've developed a Java Webdynpro interactive form and deployed into my DEV server (NW2004s Sp12).

Unfortunately, form is displaying in my sneak preview version (Nw2004s SP9), getting error when deployed into Dev server - NW2004s SP12 on HP-UX.

We haven't installed ADS separately, making use of ADS comes with the default installation.

Error :

======= Reatimed out Failed to UPDATEDATAINPDF

I found that the following directory is empty in DEV server ... /usr/sap/EPL/JC03/j2ee/os_libs/adssap/XMLFormService, but not in sneak preview version.

Please do let me know to solve the problem.
