Quick Start (SOAP mode): Managing access control lists using the Java API

The following Java code example reads and creates access control lists (ACLs) in the repository.

    * This Java Quick Start uses the following JAR files 
    * 1. adobe-repository-client.jar 
    * 2. adobe-livecycle-client.jar 
    * 3. adobe-usermanager-client.jar 
    * 4. adobe-utilities.jar 
    * 5. jbossall-client.jar (use a different JAR file if the forms server is not deployed 
    * on JBoss) 
    * 6. commons-code-1.3.jar 
    * 7. jacorb.jar (use a different JAR file if the forms server is not deployed on JBoss) 
    * 8. jnp-client.jar (use a different JAR file if the forms server is not deployed on JBoss) 
    *  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 
    * The adobe-utilities.jar file is located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/jboss 
    * The jbossall-client.jar file is located in the following path: 
    * <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 LiveCycle Java library files" in Programming  
    * with AEM Forms
