Quick Start (Base64): Determining PDF/A compliancy using the web service API

The following C# code example determines whether the input PDF document is PDF/A-compliant. The input PDF document that is passed to the DocConverter service is named Loan.pdf. Validation results are written to an XML file named ValidationResults.xml. (See Programmatically Determining PDF/A Compliancy.)

    * Ensure that you create a .NET client assembly that uses  
    * base64 encoding. This is required to populate a BLOB  
    * object with data or retrieve data from a BLOB object. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using Base64 Encoding"
