About the Repository Service
Repository service provides resource storage and management services
to LiveCycle. When developers create a LiveCycle application, they
can deploy the assets in the repository instead of the file system.
The assets can include any type of collateral, including XML forms,
PDF forms (including Acrobat forms), form fragments, images, profiles,
policies, SWF files, DDX files, XML schemas, WSDL files, and test
For example, consider the following LiveCycle application named Applications/FormsApplication:
that there is a file named Loan.xdp located in the FormsFolder.
To access this form design, you specify the complete path (including
path to a resource located in the LiveCycle repository is:
following values show some examples of URI values:
You can browse the LiveCycle Repository
by using a web browser. To browse the repository, enter the following
URL into a web browser http://[server name]:[server port]/repository.
You can verify quick start results that are associated with the
Working with LiveCycle Repository section by using a web browser.
For example, if you add content to the LiveCycle Repository,
you can see the content in a web browser. (See Quick Start (EJB mode): Writing a resource using the Java API
repository API provides a number of operations that you can use
to store and retrieve information from the repository. For example,
you can obtain a list of resources or retrieve specific resources
that are stored in the repository when a resource is needed as part
of processing an application.
Using the Repository
service API, you can accomplish the following tasks:
Note: Using the repository
API, you cannot manage resource access control, search for resources,
or specify resource relationships by using an ECM repository.
Important: When an encrypted PDF is written to the repository,
the automated relationship extraction feature cannot be used. Otherwise,
an encrypted PDF can be stored in the repository and later retrieved.
The retriever can choose to decrypt the PDF after it is retrieved
from the repository.
