Topic: XFDF or JavaScript?

We are in the process of building a web-based app that will allow clients to log in to their accounts on our server, download PDF files, and populate various form fields from our database depending on heir accounts. From my research, the best way to do this is to write code to create an XFDF file to be downloaded first, and then from there to populate the forms data in the PDF files that is downloaded next. Is this correct? Does JavaScript play any role here (beyond calculating forms data native to PDF on the client side)?

We are expecting the clients to use Adobe Reader Version 5.0 and up.

Thanks.
