As I have been working a lot recently with Adobe interactive forms I thought I would blog about my ups and downs with the technology.
To start with the technology is very cool and allows for some very boring monotonous standard business process’ to be transformed into something very cool and dynamic.
Rich user interfaces, and the added ability of adobe forms to be emailed to all kinds of devices, gives fast opportunities for exciting, fast and forward-looking business’.
The interactive forms often act as a notification perfectly and in most cases this is what the form is for, but of recent we have been using dynamic adobe forms to display data, take new data and make an approval decision. Top this off with it being linked with a SAP BPMN work-flow and you have a killer app!
Java was are language of choice so we had to do without the automatic code validation that formcalc gives you. Looking forward i think formcalc needs to be understood to be appreciated and used.
interesting problems around submition points and the effect multiple sumit buttons has on the form caused us to stumble . . .
MORE TO COME . . . .
