Quick Start (EJB mode): Creating a PDF document based on fragments using the Java API

The following Java code example creates a PDF document that is based on a form design assembled by the Assembler service. The Assembler service assembles fragments located in multiple XDP files into a single form design. Application logic that invokes the Assembler service is located in a user-defined method named GetFormDesign. The non-interactive form is saved as a PDF file named Loan.pdf on the client computer. (See Creating PDF Documents Using Fragments.)

    * This Java Quick Start uses the EJB mode and contains the following JAR files 
    * in the class path: 
    * 1. adobe-output-client.jar 
    * 2. adobe-livecycle-client.jar 
    * 3. adobe-usermanager-client.jar 
    * 4. adobe-utilities.jar 
    * 5. jbossall-client.jar (use a different JAR file if the LiveCycle Server is not deployed 
    * on JBoss) 
    * 6. adobe-assembler-client.jar  
    * 7. jacorb.jar (use a different JAR file if the LiveCycle Server is not deployed on JBoss) 
    * 8. jnp-client.jar (use a different JAR file if the LiveCycle Server is not deployed on JBoss) 
    *  The JBoss files must be kept in the jboss\client folder. You can copy the client folder to  
    *  your local development environment and then include the 3 JBoss JAR files in your class path 
    *  These JAR files are located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/common 
    * The adobe-utilities.jar file is located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/jboss 
    * The jbossall-client.jar file is located in the following path: 
    * <install directory>/jboss/client 
    * If you want to invoke a remote LiveCycle Server instance and there is a 
    * firewall between the client application and the server, then it is  
    * recommended that you use the SOAP mode. When using the SOAP mode,  
    * you have to include additional JAR files located in the following  
    * path 
    * <install directory>/sdk/client-libs/thirdparty 
    * For information about the SOAP  
    * mode and the additional JAR files that need to be included,  
    * see "Setting connection properties" in Programming  
    * with LiveCycle 
    * For complete details about the location of the LiveCycle JAR files,  
    * see "Including LiveCycle Java library files" in Programming  
    * with LiveCycle 
    *  This is the DDX file is used to assemble multiple XDP documents: 
    * <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    * <DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/"> 
    *    <XDP result="tuc018result.xdp"> 
    *       <XDP source="tuc018_template_flowed.xdp"> 
    *          <XDPContent insertionPoint="ddx_fragment" source="tuc018_contact.xdp" fragment="subPatientContact" required="false"/> 
    *          <XDPContent insertionPoint="ddx_fragment" source="tuc018_patient.xdp" fragment="subPatientPhysical" required="false"/> 
    *          <XDPContent insertionPoint="ddx_fragment" source="tuc018_patient.xdp" fragment="subPatientHealth" required="false"/> 
    *       </XDP> 
    *    </XDP>         
    * </DDX>
