Quick Start (EJB mode): Assembling PDF Portfolios using the Java API

The following Java code example creates a PDF portfolio. The PDF portfolio is saved as a PDF file named AssemblerResultPortfolio.pdf. (See Assembling PDF Portfolios.)

    * This Java Quick Start uses the EJB mode and contains the following JAR files 
    * in the class path: 
    * 1. adobe-assembler-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 
    * This is the DDX file used to create a PDF portfolio: 
    * <DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/"> 
    *    <PDF result="portfolio1.pdf"> 
    *        <Portfolio>   
    *            <Navigator source="myNavigator">   
    *                <Resource name="navigator/image.xxx" source="myImage.png"/> 
    *            </Navigator> 
    *        </Portfolio> 
    *        <PackageFiles source="dog1"  > 
    *             <FieldData name="X">72</FieldData> 
    *            <FieldData name="Y">72</FieldData> 
    *            <File filename="saint_bernard.jpg" mimetype="image/jpeg"/> 
    *        </PackageFiles> 
    *        <PackageFiles source="dog2"  > 
    *            <FieldData name="X">120</FieldData> 
    *            <FieldData name="Y">216</FieldData> 
    *            <File filename="greyhound.pdf"/> 
    *        </PackageFiles>     
    *    </PDF> 
    * </DDX>
