Concatenate Dynamic XFA PDFs to one single document using Aspose.PDF for Java

Aspose Team,


I’ve been trying to concatenate Dynamic XFA PDfs to one single PDF using evaluation version.
Our goal is to import XML data to PDFs, then concatenate all files into one single PDF.

I’ve tried 2 different options using Aspose PDF java version.

1. Convert XFA pdf with data to standard PDF
Result : data entered in all fields are cleared using below code.
Document document = new Document(dataDir+“RR_SF424_2_0_V2_0_48742.pdf”);
//Set the form fields type as standard AcroForm
document.getForm().setType(FormType.Standard);
document.getForm().flatten();
//Save the resultant PDF
document.save(dataDir+“Standard_AcroForm.pdf”);

2. Open PDF, flatten all fields and save Pdf with a different filename. (import xml and flatten all fields also works same way)
Result : Some fields like checkbox, selection lists are still editable. and some data is not retained using below code.
com.aspose.pdf.facades.Form form1 = new com.aspose.pdf.facades. Form();
form1.bindPdf(dataDir + “RR_SF424_2_0_V2_0_48742.pdf”);
form1.flattenAllFields();
form1.save(dataDir + “RR_SF424_2_0_V2_0_48742_data_flatten.pdf”);

//different PDF Test (first few fields are not retained with data )
com.aspose.pdf.facades.Form pdfForm = new com.aspose.pdf.facades.Form();
pdfForm.bindPdf(dataDir + “BSRI_RR_Budgetv.pdf”);
pdfForm.flattenAllFields();
pdfForm.save(dataDir + “BSRI_RR_Budgetv_flatten.pdf”);

Please suggest the right way of converting and concatenation process.

Hi Geetha,


Thanks for contacting support.

I have tested the scenario of converting XFA form (RR_SF424_2_0_V2_0_48742.pdf) to Standard AcroForm and as per my observations, the data is not being preserved in resultant document. For the sake of correction, I have logged this problem
as PDFNEWJAVA-35331 in our issue tracking system. We will
further look into the details of this problem and will keep you updated on the
status of correction. Please be patient and spare us little time. We are sorry

Hello Aspose team,

I am using aspose-words-19.10-jdk17 but I don’t seem to get the expected results when saving my XFA’s as standard forms. Here is what I am doing:

com.aspose.pdf.Document document = new com.aspose.pdf.Document(grantFormPath);
document.getForm().setType(FormType.Standard);
document.save(grantFormPath.replace(".pdf", “_STD.pdf”));
document.close();
document.dispose();

When I used the same file as the original post (RR_SF424_2_0_V2_0_39837.pdf) I get an empty standard file. I also tried with a different file and that worked but the hidden elements are now visible and stay on top of the fields.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

@mescobar

Would you kindly share your sample PDF document with us, so that we can test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

Sure, here are the documents I used, the ones that end in _STD are the resulting files.

Thank you!
