Greetings,  I have a project using some javascript to attach an accroform (not livecycle form) to a database to pull some options.  

I just installed Acrobat X pro (v 10) and found out that ADBC does not work in version 10.  I have a problem with using XFA or SOAP workflow because the forms have to work on Ipads.

Is there any way to move forward with Adobe technology and still be able to create a database connection using ADBC?

Or does anyone know how to make a connection using SOAP or XFA work on an Ipad?

Thanks!

ADBC is no longer part of Acrobat X. Adobe decided a while ago to drop support for ADBC. The first step was in Acrobat 9, where it required some user action to re-enable it, and in X it's gone completely.

Unless Adobe releases a version of Reader of iOS with SOAP and/or XFA support, you can't. I am also not aware of any 3rd party PDF readers that support SOAP or XFA.
