This page has helpful information about many of the questions people ask about Adobe AEM Forms and products. Although the definitive source for Adobe product information is www.adobe.com, our succinct and clear answers provide a good overview of AEM Forms products and licensing.

How can I buy Adobe Designer?

You can buy a license for LiveCycle Designer ES4 directly from Adobe for $299US. Simply go to the page below and click the "Buy now" link at the bottom. LiveCycle Designer ES4 is the program you want to create interactive and dynamic XFA PDF forms. Adobe also markets this product under the brand AEM Forms Designer (versions 6.1, 6.2, 6.3). The programs are virtually the same but they have different names.

Go to the Adobe page now.


How can I download a trial copy of Adobe Designer?

First, open this page:

helpx.adobe.com

Then open this page and the download will start:

trials3.adobe.com


How can I preview HTML5 forms in Designer?

Yes, but you will need access to an AEM Forms server. Designer creates XFA (XML Forms Architecture) forms that can be rendered as either PDF or HTML5. You can save a self-contained PDF form directly from Designer. However, an HTML5 file needs a server to transform the XFA to HTML5 and to host the HTML5 form. Let us know if you need a server and we will provide access to one in our SmartDoc Data Center.

Are there 2 different versions of AEM Forms?

Yes, although Adobe’s marketing and communication may refer to either or both products as AEM Forms. As of version 6.3 (spring 2017), there are 2 distinct offerings: AEM Forms on JEE and AEM Forms on OSGI. AEM Forms on JEE has all of the services and AEM Forms on OSGI only has some of the services. If you can see this screen, you have AEM Forms on JEE.
