Quick Start (MTOM): Creating a PDF/A document using the web service API

The following C# code example creates a PDF/A document named LoanArchive.pdf. This PDF document is based on a form design named Loan.xdp and an XML data file named Loan.xml. The LoanArchive.pdf is written to the C:\Adobe folder located on the J2EE application server hosting LiveCycle, not the client computer. (See Creating PDF/A Documents.)

    * 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
