    Hi Bhavik,

    there is extensive documentation on creating PDF-based forms for printing in ABAP Workbench (transaction SFP) on the SAP Help Portal at

    The infrastructure is identical (ADS on Java Engine) except that you need an ABAP backend (minimum 6.40) and the corresponding SAP GUI. You also need to create an HTTP connection from your ABAP system to the ADS in transaction SM59 (see ADS Configuration Guide).

    Your Adobe LiveCycle Designer installation from the NWDS should be OK, if you are working on the same frontend. (If you have difficulties with Designer, uninstall it and install it with the SAP GUI again).

    Note that Web Dynpro for ABAP integration is only supported as of NetWeaver 2004s (going into ramp-up with mySAP ERP 2005 this month), which means that interactive scenarios are more cumbersome to implement in ABAP with NetWeaver 04.

    Some of the things you get with the Web Dynpro framework (such as the return of data in interactive scenarios via the WD context) would need to be manually coded when working in SFP, which was designed for output forms.

    Hope this helps,
