Quick Start (SOAP mode): Creating a policy using the Java API

The following Java code example creates a new Policy named Allow Extended Authentication.This policy overrides the Authentication Options configured on the server, and allows only Extended Authentication. The policy set to which the policy is added is named Global Policy Set. This policy set exists by default. (See Creating Policies.)

 * This Java Quick Start uses the SOAP mode and contains the following JAR files 
 * in the class path: 
 * 1. adobe-rightsmanagement-client.jar 
 * 2. namespace.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 3. jaxb-api.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 4. jaxb-impl.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 5. jaxb-libs.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 6. jaxb-xjc.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 7. relaxngDatatype.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 8. xsdlib.jar (if LiveCycle ES is deployed on JBoss) 
 * 9. adobe-livecycle-client.jar 
 * 10. adobe-usermanager-client.jar 
 * 11. adobe-utilities.jar 
 * 12. jbossall-client.jar (use a different JAR file if LiveCycle ES is not deployed on JBoss) 
 * 13. activation.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 14. axis.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 15. commons-codec-1.3.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 16.  commons-collections-3.1.jar  (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 17. commons-discovery.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 18. commons-logging.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 19. dom3-xml-apis-2.5.0.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 20. jaxen-1.1-beta-9.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 21. jaxrpc.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 22. log4j.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 23. mail.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 24. saaj.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 25. wsdl4j.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 26. xalan.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 27. xbean.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 * 28. xercesImpl.jar (required for SOAP mode) 
 *  These JAR files are located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe LiveCycle ES4/sdk/client-libs/common 
 * The adobe-utilities.jar file is located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe LiveCycle ES4/sdk/client-libs/jboss 
 * The jbossall-client.jar file is located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe LiveCycle ES4/jboss/client 
 * SOAP required JAR files are located in the following path: 
 * <install directory>/Adobe/Adobe LiveCycle ES4/sdk/client-libs/thirdparty 
 * If you want to invoke a remote LiveCycle server instance and there is a 
 * firewall between the client application and LiveCycle server, then it is 
 * recommended that you use the SOAP mode. When using the SOAP mode, 
 * you have to include these additional JAR files 
 * For information about the SOAP 
 * mode, see "Setting connection properties" in Programming 
 * with LiveCycle server
