Appligent, Inc. announces FDFMerge 3.7

SEPTEMBER 29, 2001 — On September 26, 2001, Appligent, Inc. announced Version 3.7 of FDFMerge, which is a server-based, command-line application that combines PDF forms with FDF data files to create new PDF forms or files.

FDFMerge generates completed forms reliably and saves them on your server. According to Appligent, Inc., FDFMerge should be viewed as an alternative to using Adobe form-filling mechanisms, and FDFMerge offers benefits not offered by the Adobe technology. Here are some of these benefits:
  • With FDFMerge, any Adobe Postscript Type 1 font, OCR or bar code font can be used to render form-field text; with the Adobe technology, only the Base 14 fonts can be used for form-field text.

  • With FDFMerge, it is more difficult for an end user to change merged PDF files.

  • Merged PDF files created by FDFMerge are easier for server-based applications to process than merged PDF documents created by Adobe form-filling mechanisms.

  • Merged PDF files created by FDFMerge can be viewed by any PDF viewer - a plug-in is not required. In contrast, the Acrobat forms plug-in is required for viewing form-field data in merged PDF files that were created by Adobe form-filling mechanisms.

New Features in Version 3.7

Here is a partial list of features that are new in FDFMerge 3.7:
  • Acrobat 5 files are supported fully

  • You can merge a PDF Page into a form field

  • You can merge a JPEG image into a form field

  • The "Button" field type is supported

FDFMergeOCX for Windows COM Programmers

On September 26th Appligent also announced FDFMergeOCX. FDFMergeOCX allows a Windows programmer to utilize COM technology to integrate FDFMerge capabilities into an existing infrastructure. This means that Windows programmers can access the power of FDFMerge via Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual Basic (VB), Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC), Microsoft .NET, and all other COM-aware programming frameworks.
