Quick Start (SOAP mode): Importing XMP metadata using the Java API

The following code example imports XMP metadata and saves the new PDF file to disk. The PDF document is based on a PDF file named Loan.pdf. The XML document that contains the metadata to import into the PDF document is based on an XML file named LoanMetaData.xml . For information about this XML file, see Importing Metadata into PDF Documents.

    * This Java Quick Start uses the following JAR files 
    * 1. adobe-pdfutility-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-3.2.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) 
    *  The JBoss files must be kept in the jboss\client folder. You can copy the client folder to  
    *  your local development environment and then include the 3 JBoss JAR files in your class path 
    *  These JAR files are located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/common 
    * <install directory>/jboss/bin/client 
    * If you want to invoke a remote forms server instance and there is a 
    * firewall between the client application and the server, then it is  
    * recommended that you use the SOAP mode. When using the SOAP mode,  
    * you have to include additional JAR files located in the following  
    * path 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/thirdparty 
    * For information about the SOAP  
    * mode and the additional JAR files that need to be included,  
    * see "Setting connection properties" in Programming  
    * with AEM Forms 
    * For complete details about the location of the AEM Forms JAR files,  
    * see "Including AEM Forms Java library files" in Programming  
    * with AEM Forms
