Quick Start (Java SWAref): Determining whether a document is PDF/A compliant using the web service API

The following Java code example determines whether the input PDF document is PDF/A compliant. The input PDF document that is passed to the Assembler service is named Loan.pdf. The name of the DDX document is shell_PDFA.xml. The XML document that is returned from the Assembler service and specifies whether the input PDF document is PDF/A compliant is saved as an XML file named result.xml. (See Determining Whether Documents Are PDF/A- Compliant.)

    * Ensure that you create Java proxy files that consume 
    * the Assembler services  WSDL. You can use JAX-WS to create 
    * the proxy Java files.   
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using SwaRef" in Programming with LiveCycle.
