We have been hard at work on our Solution Accelerator lab (filter by Speaker and choose my name, “Cameron, Stefan”). Now that the content is coming together, there have been a few changes which I thought I should mention in light of my previous post.
In order to ensure the lab is successful in the short amount of time we have (90 minutes) to build a small end-to-end solution, the Content Creation (CCR) and Correspondence Generation (CGR) building blocks will no longer be featured. Instead, we will feature the following building blocks, which should give you a taste for their power to accelerate your own solutions:
I have just been asked to be one of the speakers/trainers for the “Developing Enterprise Solutions Using Adobe Solution Accelerators” lab in the LiveCycle Develop track at MAX this year. Once you’ve registered for MAX, launch the Scheduler and choose “By Session > Filter By: (product) LiveCycle ES; (speaker) Cameron, Stefan” to see my sessions. I will most likely be focusing my time on the Correspondence Generation (CGR) and Content Creation (CCR) building blocks which ship as part of the Solution Accelerator SDKs.
See you there!

Have you ever needed to create data nodes in the Data DOM on-the-fly? How about a need to parse XML obtained from a web service data connection in order to find a value for some property? If that’s the case, then you’ll find-out how to do it in this article.
Creating Data Nodes
In a similar article, John Brinkman showed how to create form variable nodes at runtime however what’s not obvious about data nodes is that you don’t create them using
a class name of your choice.
For example, say you wanted to create the following data node structure:
There are some activities that all businesses need to do. Two of those are corresponding with customers and opening new accounts (they could be simple processes or they could be very complicated depending on various requirements). Adobe has recognized this need and has added a new segment to it’s LiveCycle Enterprise Suite called Solution Accelerators.
These Solution Accelerators come in the form of development kits that provide tools, built on top of LiveCycle, that are designed to help businesses, enterprises and government agencies quickly get started on a correspondence (eg. building letters and sending them to customers) and/or enrollment (eg. opening a new bank account) solution tailored to their business requirements.
