Quick Start (MTOM): Creating search rules using the web service API

The following C# code example creates two text patterns that the Output service searches for. The first text pattern is Mortgage. If found, the Output service uses the form design named Mortgage.xdp. The second text pattern is Automobile. If found, the Output service uses the form design named AutomobileLoan.xdp. If neither text pattern is located, the Output service uses the default form design named Loan.xdp. The Loan.pdf is written to the C:\Adobe folder located on the J2EE application server hosting LiveCycle, not the client computer. (See Creating Search Rules.)

    * Ensure that you create a .NET project that uses  
    * MS Visual Studio 2008 and version 3.5 of the .NET 
    * framework. This is required to invoke a  
    * LiveCycle service using MTOM. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using MTOM" in Programming with LiveCycle
