Quick Start (EJB mode): Digitally signing a PDF document using the Java API

The following Java code example digitally signs a PDF document that is based on a PDF file named LoanSig.pdf. The alias that is specified for the security credential is secure, and revocation checking is performed. Because no CRL or OCSP server information is specified, the server information is obtained from the certificate used to digitally sign the PDF document. The signed document is saved as a PDF file named LoanSigned.pdf. (See Digitally Signing PDF Documents.)

    * This Java Quick Start uses the following JAR files 
    * 1. adobe-signatures-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. jacorb.jar (use a different JAR file if the LiveCycle server is not deployed on JBoss) 
    * 7. 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
