Adobe LiveCycle was a suite of server-based Java EE applications from Adobe to automate business processes for enterprises and government agencies.

Product history[]

The LiveCycle line began as a key component of Adobe Document Services,[1] which was announced on June 8, 2004.[2][3] Electronic forms for LiveCycle were developed by Indigo Pacific,[4] founded by the staff that originally created the technology that became Adobe Central Output Server.[5]
