DocumentXfa Property

Whether the document is an XML Forms Architecture (XFA) or a PDF document

While XFA documents may seem like regular PDF documents they are not and cannot be processed by many components (error UnsupportedFeatureException). An XFA form is included as a resource in a mere shell PDF. The PDF pages' content is generated dynamically from the XFA data, which is a complex, non-standardized process. For this reason, XFA is forbidden by the ISO Standards ISO 19'005-2 (PDF/A-2) and ISO 32'000-2 (PDF 2.0) and newer. It is recommended to convert XFA documents to PDF using an Adobe product, e.g. by using the "Print to PDF" function of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
