I had the request to create some PDF-files within a Web Dynpro application, so I started to deal with the Adobe Document Services.

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”

    1. order your credentials by opening an OSS-message at BC-SRV-FP according to note 736902
    2. 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.

    1. 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.

get the ADS-installation files at Download Center . You’ll need at least part 51030723_1 (ADS) & 51030843_Now, you can follow the instructions in the InteractiveForm tutorial at SAP Help .

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:

    1. XMLFormModule default.trc: Exception while getting property – received com.adobe.service.NoSuchPropertyException: IDL:com/adobe/service/NocSuchPropertyException:1.0 for property ConfigXML.

Server.log: #0#0#Info#1#com.sap.engine.services.jndi#Plain###Path to object does not exist at wsclients, the whole lookup name is webContainer/applications/sap.com/tcwddispwda/webdynpro/dispatcher/wsclients/proxies/sap.com/ tcwdpdfobject/com.sap.tc.webdynpro.adsproxy.AdsProxy.#</li>
</ul

    Hi Achim,

    you (and probably others) will be glad to hear that SAP will make the new ACF for Support Package Stack 11 (support for Adobe Reader 7.0 in Web Dynpro) available through the corresponding SAP Note 766191 by next week, i.e. before the official shipment of SP Stack 11 in CW 10.
    My understanding is that installing this ACF version you can then use Reader 7.0 with SP Stack 10 installations as well.

    Hope this helps.

      James,

      the mentioned CD/DVD numbers in the Blog are for the NW04-Version. But there are installation CD/DVDs for NW04s, too. Just select Netweaver 2004s in the Download Center.

      kr, achim

    Hi Achim,

    are you aware of errors when printing the PCL that includes country specific characters?
    The printout shows not-defined signs instead of the characters.

    Thanks,
    Thomas
