My struggles with the Adobe Document Services in WAS6.40
This blog will guide you to the installation process.
First of all, get the following files / documents / notes.
ADS Installation & Documentation Guide at Adobe Quicklink . Navigate to “Media Library / Documentation”
- order your credentials by opening an OSS-message at BC-SRV-FP according to note 736902
- Be sure, that you use the correct(!) Acrobat Reader version on your client. It must
be 6.0.2, which is available at Adobe Reader Archives . At the moment, Acrobat Reader 7.x is not supported, it will be with SP11.
- get the ACF file from note 766191 for your SP-release and install it after your Acrobat Reader installation on your client.
make sure, that you have installed the Java Crypto Toolkit, you’ll need for applying/using the credentials-file, you’ve ordered earlier. It’s located here.
My main problem was the correct Acrobat Reader Version. I supposed to be at latest patch level, because the automatic online update didn’t find any updates for my version. And I knew, Version 7.x isn’t supported yet. So, to find the correct version at Adobe (see above) was a bit challenging… 😉
I was lost in the server logs / traces that are full of warnings / errors which were not really the problem at all (or are the follow-ups), for example:
- XMLFormModule default.trc: Exception while getting property – received com.adobe.service.NoSuchPropertyException: IDL:com/adobe/service/NocSuchPropertyException:1.0 for property ConfigXML.
