Hi. I'm trying to retrieve an Acroform data of the PDF by using this code:

COSArray fields = (COSArray)this.acroForm.getDictionaryObject(COSName.getPDFName("Fields"));

As a result I have got empty array, but this doc for sure have may filed inside, if I open this doc through the console using

java -jar pdfbox-app-2.0.2.jsr PDFReader document_name.pdf
I am able to see all fields, please see attach

I noticed that such behavior is always happening when I'm trying to open document that was merged from several documents in Acrobat DC


What you saw are widget annotations. But your acroform array is indeed empty, so you have no fields. So go back to the last step, i.e. the merging.
