Quick Start (SOAP mode): Decoding barcoded form data using the Java API

The following Java code decodes form data that is located in a PDF form that is saved as Loan.pdf. The decoded data is saved as an XML file named extractedData.xml. This code example converts a org.w3c.dom.Document object into a com.adobe.idp.Document object. (See Decoding Barcoded Form Data.)

    * This Java Quick Start uses the SOAP mode and contains the following JAR files 
    * in the class path: 
    * 1. adobe-barcodedforms-client.jar 
    * 2. adobe-livecycle-client.jar 
    * 3. adobe-usermanager-client.jar 
    * 4. adobe-utilities.jar 
    * 5. jboss-client.jar (use a different JAR file if the forms server is not deployed 
    * on JBoss) 
    * 6. activation.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 7. axis.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 8. commons-codec-1.3.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 9.  commons-collections-3.1.jar  (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 10. commons-discovery.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 11. commons-logging.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 12. dom3-xml-apis-2.5.0.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 13. jaxen-1.1-beta-9.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 14. jaxrpc.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 15. log4j.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 16. mail.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 17. saaj.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 18. wsdl4j.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 19. xalan.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 20. xbean.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    * 21. xercesImpl.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
    *  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 jboss-client.jar file is located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/jboss/bin/client 
    * SOAP required JAR files are located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/thirdparty 
    * 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 these additional JAR files 
    * For information about the SOAP  
    * mode, see "Setting connection properties" in Programming  
    * with AEM Forms

Note: When using both an org.w3c.dom.Document object and a com.adobe.idp.Document object in the same application logic, it is good practice to fully qualify both objects.
