Adobe has recently started showcasing the great solutions that Adobe Partners have built on top of LiveCycle ES. This example is from Australia’s very own Avoka Technologies and covers some of the forms capabilities of Adobe LiveCycle.
Avoka have taken the foundation that LiveCycle ES provides customers to build a form solution, and have created FormCenter to streamline the process of getting a full forms solution in place.
Adobe Solution Partner Avoka Technologies has announced their new form generation service, SmartForm Composer, a companion product to Adobe LiveCycle ES, to streamline the rapid creation of template based PDF SmartForms.
Avoka have built SmartForm Composer to enable business analysts, form designers and others to build forms using an Adobe Flash based interface inside their web browser. Using templates a user can create a form by dragging and dropping template widgets onto the form.
As you can see from the video, Composer has the potential to create forms really quickly, yet still output XFA compliant files that can be opened up in LiveCycle Designer if required and used in LiveCycle workflows. I’m told by Avoka that they see this tool being used alongside LiveCycle Designer, where Designer is used for design orientated forms that require customization and allow you exact control of graphical layout and scripting, while Composer focusses on template style forms.
Have you ever wanted to learn about Adobe LiveCycle ES but weren’t quite sure where to get started? Perhaps you thought you knew everything there was to know but didn’t realise that there was more to LiveCycle ES than the Designer tool that comes with Acrobat?
Tour de LiveCycle is an Adobe AIR application that you can download as a desktop reference guide that pools a massive amount of LiveCycle information into one quick handy place.
