Qoppa Software is happy to announce the availability of jPDFWeb, a Java class library that can convert PDF documents to SVG & HTML5.
For companies needing to publish PDF documents on the internet, this is good news, as the library can be easily integrated to create a zero footprint HTML5 PDF viewer that works on all browsers and all client platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux, IOS or Android.
On the server-side, jPDFWeb is used to convert on-demand and at high speed PDF documents to SVG. SVG format is a vector graphics format, developed by the World Wide Web, which supports most of the sophisticated features of the PDF format and is resolution independent for high quality viewing. Java is the de-facto programming language for web servers, and a pure Java library such as jPDFWeb, guarantees stability and ease of integration with any J2EE server (such as Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, Weblogic, Websphere, Glassfish) and on any server platform: Windows, Linux or Unix.
On the client-side, SVG / HTML5 is supported by all browsers and platforms so there is no need for platform specific PDF plug-ins or viewers. A zero foot-print HTML5 PDF Viewer, which demonstrates how to communicate with the server to serve – page by page – the converted SVG / HTML5 files is provided by Qoppa Software. The source code is also made available so developers can customize the viewer visually or functionally to the specific needs of their website or application.
jPDFWeb is based on Qoppa Software’s robust Java PDF parsing and rendering technology, which has been developed and refined over the last 12 years.
