    In the last blog post, we discussed the two main types of signatures (Electronic and Digital).  We then explored some examples of each.  In this continuation, we will continue to explore different types of signatures that you can leverage in your form based business processes.

    What is an e-Signature? Part I.

    June 5, 2017 1:30 PM by Dave Venance

    There are two kinds of signatures today:


    •        Electronic Signatures


    An electronic signature, or e-signature, refers to data in electronic form, which is logically associated with other data in electronic form and which is used by the signatory to sign or confirm their approval of a document or transaction.


    •        Digital Signatures


    These are a subset of electronic signatures because they are also in electronic form. Digital signatures, are a cryptographic mechanism often used to implement electronic signatures.  Digital signatures go much further in terms of providing security and trust services. 



    Let’s consider the differences between electronic signatures and digital signatures in more detail.

    Oh, the Things You’ll Do With XFA Source XML…

    Part 1 - XFA Stitching


    Most LiveCycle/AEM form developers know that the source code for an XFA form template is XML. Many experienced form developers regularly inspect the XML source and modify it directly either via the XML Source tab in LiveCycle Designer or by opening the XDP in their favorite editor. Some things can be done a lot quicker this way: batch changes, text tweaks, etc. Also, sometimes debugging tasks can be helped greatly by going directly to the source. Of course, since the source is XML, we can do much more to it: transform it with XSLT, load it into a DOM and manipulate it – delete nodes, move nodes, and add nodes, etc., - anything that we normally do with XML data.

    Centralizing configuration data using an Inherited Paragraph System

    May 8, 2017 8:46 AM by Peter Crummey

    While recently developing a web site for a large financial services client, the requirement emerged to have common components on all pages of the web site with the same data on each. Creating a header section with these components was relatively easy; getting them all to have the same configuration values but not configuring each page individually, not so much.

    Training for Adobe Experience Manager Matters

    April 24, 2017 11:59 AM by Tim Reeve

    When I entered my first swim race, I trained hard to become a better swimmer. Time spent on stroke, breathing, all the necessary parts. Then, when the race started, I found out we needed to dive in to start. That was news to me and rather slowed down the rest of my race! We’ve all had the experience of realizing we could have done something better if only we had better knowledge. That is where training (with some guidance!) comes in. Training helps not just the individual, but their group and organization as well.
