Quick Start (SOAP mode): Determining whether a document is PDF/A compliant using the Java API

The following Java code example determines whether the input PDF document is PDF/A compliant. The input PDF document that is passed to the Assembler service is named Loan.pdf . The name of the DDX document is shell_PDFA.xml. The XML document that is returned from the Assembler service and specifies whether the input PDF document is PDF/A compliant is saved as an XML file named result.xml. For information about the shell_PDFA.xml DDX document used in this code example, see Determining Whether Documents Are PDF/A- Compliant.

    * This Java Quick Start uses the SOAP mode and contains the following JAR files 
    * in the class path: 
    * 1. adobe-assembler-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. 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 jbossall-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 
    * This quick start validates the following DDX document: 
    *<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    *<DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/"> 
    *    <DocumentInformation source="Loan.pdf" result="Loan_result.xml"> 
    *    <PDFAValidation compliance="PDF/A-1b" resultLevel="Detailed" ignoreUnusedResources="true" allowCertificationSignatures="true" /> 
    *    </DocumentInformation>
