One of the most common use cases for LiveCycle ES is to provide Services that auto complete field information in forms. For example, an employee’s name and address or manager name etc. This is typically done by authoring an LiveCycle Service that queries your corporate LDAP Server. Then the LiveCycle Service is invoked as a Web Service by the Form in response to a button push or tab transition


In this demo, we look at the basics for authoring a LiveCyce process that uses LDAP to get information you typically need for a Form. Then we look at how that Service is exposed by LiveCycle via a WSDL for binding to the Form. I also show a little bit of Reader Extensions and how to configure secure web services.
