The Java™ API provides access to the content and structure of XFDL forms.
It contains classes and methods that allow you to:
  • read and write forms
  • add, revise, and delete form content
  • add, revise, and delete XForms data
  • manipulate form structure
  • add, remove, examine, and validate digital signatures
  • add custom functions that are available to computes within XFDL forms
Note that undocumented methods are not supported. Do not use undocumented methods in your applications.
