Adobe LiveCycle Workbench ES Component Development Tool

Building custom components for Adobe LiveCycle ES can be as simple as writing an xml file. In fact, that’s all I had to do to convert a couple of POJOs into a ShortenURL & Twitter custom components. However things can always be made easier which is what this new Adobe Labs project aims to do.

Adobe® LiveCycle® Workbench ES Component Development Tool is a Plug-in for Eclipse that helps Java developers build a custom Component for LiveCycle ES. The Component Development Tool makes is easy to create a new Java project used to build a Component jar file, define the Services and Operations your Component will expose and include third party Java logic inside your Component. The Component Development Tool includes a GUI to help create and modify your component XML.

Download it from Adobe Labs and let me know what you build!

    Hi,

    I’m trying to develop a LCES component using the ES Component Development Tool but was not able to convert my project to LiveCycle Component Project. The issue is that there are libs missing in the classpath for some adobe libs (such as adobe-livecycle-client.jar) and thirdparty ones (such as activation.jar) under eclipse/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/bundles/xxx/x/.cp/libs/common (and thirdparty) . I was able to manually copy all the jar files from my ADEP installation except one. The one I could not find was adobe-componentlib.jar. Where can I find this jar?

    Thanks.
