We can generate RDS file from Arbortext Editor and send this document to PE for publishing (EDIT ->> Resolve Document --> For Styling). But we cannot do the same using HTTP/Webservies call from Windchill (Please refer case id 11825786 for more details). As per our understanding we can get "flatted document" & "PDF document" by specifying 'type' attribute in java call. But we need option to recieve RDS file back.
The requirement is, we want to do baseline all the referred objects in MAP/Bookmap, so even these referred object get changed later we can publish the same PDF any point of time by storing RDS file in windchill ( which can be used for publishing later).
So please add RDS option to f=convert, so we can get RDS back as zip from java call to PE.
