XML parsing error (incorrect token - error code 4) - When Acrobat Reader X/XI open form filled by pdf.kit


I tried evaluate form fill design by Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES2 using below code.
It’s filling is ok and well open in FoxIt except Acrobat X/XI (also include Reader).

When I open form pdf file in Acrobat, It warning 3 times same error dialoge - "Xml parsing error (incorrect token/error code 4) 49 lines; I don’t know exactly english message, because I translated local to english - and than show correctly.

I guess that error cause by evaluation statement generated by Aspose.Pdf.Kit because that “evaulation only” message showed in Acrobat but didn’t show in Foxit.

Please support to resolve this problem.

— test code —

package com.henc.aspose;

import com.aspose.pdf.kit.*;

* Hello world!
public class App
public static String inFile = “c://work//visa_application.pdf”;
public static String outFile = “c://work///visa_submit.pdf”;

public App() throws Exception {

public void fillForm() throws Exception {
Form form = new Form (inFile, outFile);
String[] fieldNames = form.getFieldsNames();

for (int fieldIdx = 0; fieldIdx <fieldNames.length; fieldIdx++) {
System.out.println(“field:” + fieldNames[fieldIdx]
+ “, type:” + form.getFieldType(fieldNames[fieldIdx]));
try {
if (fieldNames[fieldIdx].indexOf(“RadioButtonList”) > 0 ||
fieldNames[fieldIdx].indexOf(“AddSubformButton”) > 0) {

} catch (ClassCastException ex_cast) {
form.fillField (“form1[0].#subform[1].#field[58]”, "A " + fieldIdx);


public static void main( String[] args ) throws Exception
new App();
