Subject Cannot load pre existing PDF to access fields
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2015 07:15:31 GMT

I am trying to load a fillable pdf file I created (using LiveCycle), but cannot seem to get
a hold of the fields. Is there anything obviously wrong with the code below or could it be
my form? 

                                PDDocument pdfDoc = new PDDocument();
            String fileTemplate = "D:\\PDFTemplates\\RPA_Template_Test.pdf";

            try {
                  pdfDoc = PDDocument.load(fileTemplate);
                  PDDocumentCatalog docCatalog = pdfDoc.getDocumentCatalog();
                  PDAcroForm pdfTemplate = docCatalog.getAcroForm();
                  List<PDField> pdfFields = pdfTemplate.getFields();
                  System.out.println( pdfFields.isEmpty() );  //always true

Thank you,
Tolen Miller
