Tweet   Almost 2 years back I did a quick post rejoicing about JMS removal from LiveCycle and Work Manager API introduction in LiveCycle ES2. It’s been a while since then and this post summarises what benefits we get with Work Manager and what is critical to do in any LiveCycle ES2 + installations so Work Manager works in favor of you and not the other way around. Important: ALL […]

Tweet Until LiveCycle ES2, the JMS was used in LiveCycle to manage processes and tasks. This has led to some of the odd and painful incidents.. LiveCycle ES2 uses Workmanager API (JSR-237) which will definitely make the LiveCycle community happier.. The Livecycle server can also have the java parameters to control the workmanager throttling options. Here are the option that you can tweak as java parameters: adobe.work-manager.queue-refill-interval adobe.workmanager.debug-mode-enabled adobe.workmanager.memory-control.enabled adobe.workmanager.memory-control.high-limit […]

Tweet In my quest to use XPath functions & expressions more efficiently in LiveCycle I managed to achieve ‘conditional set value’ yesterday. Example scenarios: Add some text to email body if some condition is true/false. Add some text into T&Cs if certain product is selected. In a generic/single Email or Set Value step you need to construct a big block of text. eg. Offer letter with certain paragraphs based on […]

Tweet I’m thrilled to see LiveCycle ES2 help page with the links to all of the ES2 documentation. Thanks to Livecycle Docs team at Adobe for publishing this one page reference. I’ve seen colleagues and clients struggling to find different docs since I started working on LiveCycle, some 4 years back. This is the page that we all should have in our bookmarks. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/lc_doclist.html Thanks again Doc team!!

Tweet I was recently reading about upgrade to ES2 and new features of ES2 and these are my favorite bits. I’ll play with ES2 after the GM release and post the experiance later.. But so far this is what I’m really looking forward in ES2. Simplify testing and deployment by previewing your business process, including testing form and Flex® user interfaces, and recording the process results. The testing is on […]

Tweet I was experimenting with xpath expression and found that the ‘and’ and ‘or’ works perfectly as the logical operators. I’m perosnally so happy to see them working. In few cases it was too hard to configure the conditional routes with just OR/AND joint. I’ve attached an example to demonstrate a simple usage of ‘and’-‘or’ logical operators. This is the condition that I’ve put in the example. (normalize-space(/process_data/@Input_Value1)=’555′ or normalize-space(/process_data/@Input_Value1)=’666′) […]
