A few questions regarding the configuration of Adobe Document Services


<u><i>For Your Information: the main questions are repeated at the end of this post.</i></u>

The Adobe Document Services seems to work fine. The test I did on http://<server>:<port>/AdobeDocumentServices/Config gives the error

' "Required stream: "PDFDocument" not found.” ' so that's fine.

But when I do this: http://server:50000/webdynpro/dispatcher/local/TutWD_OnlineInteractiveForm/OnlineInteractiveFormApp

The result: the PDF is shown and I can enter text in the textboxes and also use the radioboxes.

But I can't use the dropdownboxes, neither can I use the "submit" and "check" buttons..

Is this normal? Or is it because of the ReaderRights credential?

Or is it necessary to install the ACF?

Here is some info I got from a blog:

"<b>Client Side Requirements</b>

Follow the steps mentioned below. Please make sure the following prerequisites are met before working with Adobe Interactive Forms.

  • NWDS 7.0 / 6.0

  • Adobe Live cycle designer 7.1 / 7.0

  • Adobe Reader 7.0.8 [ Minimum : 7.0.1]

<b>End User Requirements</b>

  • Adobe Reader 7.0.8 [ Minimum : 7.0.1]

  • Active Component Framework (ACF) - SPS 9, SPS 10"

Two more questions;

1)This info is in the config guide:

"If you have installed the ADS and the WD runtime environment on different J2EE engines and if the communication between these engines uses the SLD, you need to publish the ADS to the SLD."

Does this mean that I don't need to do this when I haven't used SLD? Or is it necessary to install SLD?

Some more info:



A System Landscape Dir must already have been configured.

If you have not yet done so, perform the necessary activities according to the documentation SAP System Landscape Directory, Administrative Activities section, chapters:

  • Start and stop the SLD Service

  • Configure the SLD Server

  • Configure data persistence

  • Make settings for the SLD bridge

You can find this documentation by calling the following URL in your web

browser: http://<host>:<port>/sld


When I check this URL, I don't see anything concerning an (already configured) SLD.

2) Do I need the license below too to develop in AIF?


Main questions----

I need to create a form with a few fields (of which some fields are mandatory); then I have to use a few BAPI's to check these fields and to save the content in a CRM system.

I've installed Netweaver Sneak Preview, and configured Adobe Document Services (made ADSUser & ADSCaller, set IIOP etc to Autostart, Installed the credentials). The tests seem to work fine, but I haven't developed anything yet.

My questions:

1)Is it necessary to install the ACF?

2)Is it necessary to install Adobe LifeCycle Designer?

3)Also SLD?

4)Also the license described above?
