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

The following C# 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 a .NET project that uses  
    * MS Visual Studio 2008 and version 3.5 of the .NET 
    * framework. This is required to invoke a  
    * LiveCycle service using MTOM. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using MTOM" in Programming with LiveCycle   
    * The following XML represents the DDX document used in this quick start: 
    * <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    *<DDX xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/DDX/1.0/"> 
    *        <DocumentInformation source="Loan.pdf" result="Loan_result.xml"> 
    *        <PDFAValidation compliance="PDF/A-1b" resultLevel="Detailed"  
    *        ignoreUnusedResources="true" allowCertificationSignatures="true" /> 
    *    </DocumentInformation>
