Passing a document back to a client application

A client application receives an object of type mx.rpc.livecycle.DocumentReference for a service operation that returns an com.adobe.idp.Document instance as an output parameter. Because a client application deals with ActionScript objects and not Java, you cannot pass a Java-based Document object back to a Flex client. Instead, the server generates a URL for the document and passes the URL back to the client. The DocumentReference object’s referenceType property specifies whether the content is in the DocumentReference object or must be retrieved from a URL in the DocumentReference.url property. The DocumentReference.contentType property specifies the type of document.
