Quick Start (SOAP mode): Rendering a form at the client using the Java API

The following code example renders a form named Loan.xdp at the client using the Forms service Java API. Notice that the form design is part of an application and is referenced by using the content root URI value repository:/// . (See Rendering Forms at the Client.)

    * This Java Quick Start uses the following JAR files 
    * 1. adobe-forms-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) 
    *  (Because Forms quick starts are implemented as Java servlets, it is  
    *  not necessary to include J2EE specific JAR files - the Java project 
    *  that contains this quick start is exported as a WAR file which 
    *  is deployed to the J2EE application server) 
    *  These JAR files are located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/common 
    * For complete details about the location of these JAR files,  
    * see "Including AEM Forms library files" in Programming with AEM forms.
