LiveCycle ES and Components

One of the greatest features of LiveCycle ES is it’s extendability. Although the product ships with tons of components for common things such as rendering a form, calling a web service, routing for approval, etc., it is possible to create your own components.

Avoka Technologies, an Adobe partner in Australia, has really taken advantage of this capability by building and selling their own collection of LiveCycle components. I think this is a great example of what is possible. These guys are LiveCycle gurus and completely understand the potential.

To see a list of their available components, go to http://www.avoka.com/avoka/escomponents.shtml

Components are visually assembled using LiveCycle Workbench (more on this in future postings):

Mike Hodgeson, an eSystem Specialist in the Enterprise Technology team at Adobe, wrote a great article on how to create your own components that includes sample code. Check it out at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/livecycle/articles/dsc_development.html

Here is one of Mike’s illustrations to wet your appetite:
