Topic: Receiving FDF stream from Java servlet
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 58901

We have some serious problems:
We want to provide our users with a link within the web browser, that opens Adobe Acrobat and displays a PDF template filled with FDF data.

This link points to a Java servlet that creates the FDF stream (application/vnd.fdf) containing the /F key and some values (/T with /V) for the form text fields.

If you open the FDF stream within the same browser window (with web integration) it works fine. Unfortunality we cannot use this approach since we have signatures on the PDF template, that need write access to the file system.

If we remove the web integration and open the FDF stream in Adobe, somehow it looses the information about the /V or /Opt keys, but it opens the template specified by the /F key, ie it reads the FDF stream.

It there somebody, who had similar problems? Is there any solution at all or is it maybe a bug in Adobe?

Thanks a lot
