So, it's just a PDF converted from XML, not an XML PDF? May sound the same thing, but it isn't...

 

In Acrobat you can use File > Save as > Other and select PDFA. Click Settings and choose PDF/A-3a, PDF/A-3b or PDF/A-3u. HOWEVER, you cannot use Acrobat on the Oracle server; people would need to download their generated PDFs and convert them in Acrobat. The code used in Acrobat is available from its makers in a server version, Callas PDFAPilot.

Right-click on the left icons bar to show the "Standards" pane, then click "Verify Conformance":

Hi Dear,

 

Thanks a lot, I opened some PDF files but it is not showing conformance option in left side pane, it is only showing thumnail and attachment options. so what does it mean, is it not compliance with A-3?

I think you are correct. One file is compliant. One file is not compliant. Have you done anything to make the file compliant?
