Quick Start (MTOM): Disassembling a PDF document using the web service API

The following C# code example disassembles a PDF document named AssemblerResultPDF.pdf. Notice that the name of the DDX document is shell_disassemble.xml. Each disassembled PDF document is named ResultPDF[Number].pdf. That is, the first disassembled PDF document is named ResultPDF1.pdf. For information about the shell_disassemble.xml DDX document used in this code example, see Programmatically Disassembling PDF 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   
    * The following XML represents the DDX document used in this quick start: 
    * <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    *<DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/"> 
    *  <PDFsFromBookmarks prefix="stmt"> 
    *    <PDF source="AssemblerResultPDF.pdf"/>
