Quick Start (MTOM): Assembling a PDF document using the web service API

The following C# code example merges two PDF source documents named map.pdf and directions.pdf into a single PDF document. The name of the single PDF document is AssemblerResultPDF.pdf. The name of the DDX document is shell.xml. (See Programmatically Assembling PDF Documents.)

    * 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/"> 
    *    <PDF result="out.pdf"> 
    *        <PDF source="map.pdf" /> 
    *        <PDF source="directions.pdf" /> 
    *    </PDF>
