New SDK for PDF editing/viewing supports PDF forms (AcroForms) and offers improved rendering engine & improved text searching
APRIL 3, 2005 — Version 3.0 of the Jaws PDF Editor Software Development Kit (SDK) is now shipping.
Developed by Global Graphics Software and offered for licensing by Citation
Software, the Jaws PDF Editor SDK allows programmers to incorporate PDF-viewing
capabilities and PDF-editing capabilities into their applications.
This new version of the SDK provides quite a few new features; mainly
support for AcroForms (also known as PDF forms), an improved rendering engine,
and enhanced text-searching support.
Other new features in Version 3.0 include enhanced support for
transparency, more flexibility when working with password-protected PDF documents,
and enhanced debugging support for the distillation process (the process of
converting a PostScript file to PDF format).
- Support for AcroForms: Displays and prints PDF files that contain
the following PDF form elements: text boxes, buttons, check boxes,
combo boxes, and radio buttons. Also supports the entry of data into
PDF forms and the saving of that data. The saving of data is supported
either within the form itself, or as a separate FDF file.
- Improved rendering engine: The Jaws RIP rendering engine has been
added to the product, replacing the GDI+ renderer as the default engine.
The Jaws PDF RIP rendering engine is a highly advanced renderer that
offers speed and advanced functionality. Note
that the programmer still has the option of using the GDI+ rendering engine,
- Enhanced text-searching support: The text-search interface methods
have been enhanced to provide more search options and faster searching.
In addition, the SDK now allows an external search engine to search the
PDF document, by providing an externally searchable text buffer.
Citation Software offers attractive OEM-licensing plans that are geared for small and medium-sized businesses.
