Summer release of Java PDF library adds rendering, security and interactive features enhancements

Qoppa PDF Library Launcher IconAtlanta, GA June 30 2014 – Qoppa Software’s summer release of Java® PDF component and library products delivers many rendering, security, annotations and interactive forms improvements.

 “We’ve worked on hundreds of items for this release, refining and enhancing our existing features, in order to maintain our lead in providing the most solid and comprehensive PDF libraries and visual components available in Java.” says Gerald Holmann, Qoppa Software President.

As usage of PDF increases, the documents encountered are getting bigger and more sophisticated, pushing the limits of the features defined in the PDF format. Customers need to rely on PDF solutions that are able to process all documents.

Qoppa has implemented new processing of JPEG images (not relying on imageio), making it possible to read and display “infinite size” JPEGs within PDF documents, without any memory limitation.

When it comes to security, PDF documents have also become more sophisticated.  The new permissions manager supports and enforces the 3 levels of security defined in the PDF format, in an abstracted, simplified way, making it easy to work with encrypted documents (password permissions), certified documents (DocMDP permissions), and reader-enabled documents (Usage Rights permissions).

Rendering and interactive tools were refined in Qoppa’s Java PDF visual components. It is easier than ever to markup documents and fill interactive forms in the components’ intuitive and user-friendly interface. Thanks to new on-demand loading of annotations, the first page of PDF documents is rendered fast, even when documents contain a large number of comments. New quick properties and alignment toolbars are available for fast editing and positioning of annotations. The new undo function helps users reverse any mistake. A smoothing algorithm was implemented to draw even, regular curves and lines when handwriting with the pencil annotation. Finally, form filling was improved with support for additional JavaScript functions and improvements in form field editing.
