Quick Start (Base64): Converting a document to a PDF/A document using the web service API

The following C# code example converts a PDF document named Loan.pdf into a PDF/A document that is saved as a PDF file named LoanArchive.pdf. (See Converting Documents to PDF/A Documents .)

    * 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"
