Topic: Adobe 6 with forms and digital signatures?
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 89407

I am looking to create a solution that involves users of Adobe 6 Reader to be able to fill out forms, digitally sign them with Reader (using the Reader Extensions), and then capture the data that was input into an ODBC-compliant database. I also want to possibly validate the signature during data capture.

Since this will all be done programatically, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a combination of Adobe technologies to accomplish this with?

I was thinking of using Acrobat 6.0 Pro to create the form. Then, I could enable form fill-out and digital signatures in the form by obtaining the proper license keys from adobe.

Now for form data capture on the server side, do I need to use the FDF toolkit to do programmatic capture? I know I can capture the form data. However, does that also include digital signature capture and signature validation? I would assume that I could capture the signature, since it should just be a form element. But how about validation?

Any input is appreciated!
