Tetrapod – The desktop forms directory

What do you get when you combine Adobe LiveCycle ES2, Forms & Adobe AIR? Tetrapod!

Created by my Adobe colleagues in Poland, it provides your end users with desktop access to forms and other content via a simple menu system. Tetrapod exposes information stored in LiveCycle ES Content Services and initiates forms based processes in LiveCycle ES Process Management.

You can watch a presentation on Tetrapod here: http://my.adobe.acrobat.com/tetrapod-demo/ or download Tetrapod and trial it yourself: http://devnet.host.adobe.com/download/tetrapod/ and finally a few extra videos on Tetrapod on Piotr Walczyszyn’s RIASPACE blog

    Hi Mark
    I am trying to setup Tetrapod to do a demo for one of our customers, but nothing is appearing in the Documents library so I can’t demo any content. I’ve noticed that there’s an error in the log which is probably the cause. I have downloaded the latest version as per your link. Are you able to provide any help on this? I’ve tried to reach out to Piotr Walczyszyn as well but haven’t had a response back yet. I need to do this demo on Friday.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

      Hi Mark
      I gave it a try and noticed that Piotr’s server is not responding. As its a demo its probably not running anymore. I’d make sure you have LiveCycle set up locally with the appropriate modules etc and have you changed the settings within Tetrapod to point to it.
