The PDF XFA Operation bot was created for reading and updating values from XFA formatted PDFs.  The metabot is called from within the taskbot and enables developers to export control names, update values based on control names, and read the contents of the PDF out to an XML file. The metabot has three functions:
The first logic is designed to read all the widget's control names from the PDF to a text file.

The second logic is to update/insert values into the PDF's controls based on the control name and provided value.

The third, and final logic, reads the entire PDF contents to an XML file which can be used for further data extraction/processing.
