You may want your portlet to access XFDL forms directly. For example, you may want to pre-populate forms as you load them, or extract data from forms when they are submitted.
To do this, you must install IBM
® Forms Server – APIand use it in conjunction with the IBMWorkplaceFormsServerPortlet
class to develop your portlet.
For more information about the API, refer to the IBM Forms Server – API Installation and Setup Guide
and the IBM Forms Server API – Java API User's Manual
