Introduction to Adobe Forms


From End users perspective adobe forms are nothing more than a PDF document which he use a business communication document.

The user simply does the below steps:

1. Start the transaction

2. Enter the data

But from developer perspective there is a lot to know more about adobe forms.

1. How adobe forms are developed?

2. How it works?

3. What are the possible validations and layout design he can make with it and so on.

Moving on to the topic first we will start with what all comprises an adobe form.

The important components of form are as mentioned below.

1. Interface

2. Context

3. Layout

Interface: Determines data passed to the form. Interfaces can be created in SE80 or SFP transactions. Reusable repository object can be used in N no of forms.

Form Template: It consist of layout and context

Context: The context determines which data of the interface included in the form can be used in the layout. Like whichever importing parameters, global data etc from the interface is mapped to the form’s context can be used for binding with the element of the form. Only data that are passed to the form’s context can be used inside the layout. Additionally here we can create own data specific to the form like images, text modules, graphics etc.

Layout: The layout of the form can consist of static elements (e.g. text view) or dynamic elements (e.g table). The layout requires adobe life cycle designer to be installed. The layout of the form is technically stored as XML. (XDP – XML data package).
