Quick Start (SOAP mode): Protect a PDF in Statement Workflow for a new User, using the Java API

The following Java code example demonstrates how you can protect a document in Statement Workflow. This is a two-step process:

  • A new User, License and Policy are created.

  • The User is associated with the License and Policy, and the document is Protected.

 * This Java Quick Start uses the SOAP mode and contains the following JAR files 
 * in the class path: 
 * 1. adobe-rightsmanagement-client.jar 
 * 2. adobe-livecycle-client.jar 
 * 3. adobe-usermanager-client.jar 
 * 4. activation.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 5. axis.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 6. commons-codec-1.3.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 7.  commons-collections-3.1.jar  (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 8. commons-discovery.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 9. commons-logging.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 10. dom3-xml-apis-2.5.0.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 11. jaxen-1.1-beta-9.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 12. jaxrpc.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 13. log4j.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 14. mail.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 15. saaj.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 16. wsdl4j.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 17. xalan.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 18. xbean.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 19. xercesImpl.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 *  These JAR files are located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/sdk/client-libs/common 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/sdk/client-libs/jboss 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/jboss/bin/client 
 * SOAP required JAR files are located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe_Experience_Manager_forms/sdk/client-libs/thirdparty 
 * If you want to invoke a remote forms server instance and there is a 
 * firewall between the client application and forms server, then it is 
 * recommended that you use the SOAP mode. When using the SOAP mode, 
 * you have to include these additional JAR files 
 * For information about the SOAP 
 * mode, see "Setting connection properties" in Programming 
 * with forms server
