Spring release of Java PDF components and libraries by Qoppa Software adds creation of linearized PDF documents, user interface and API enhancements

Atlanta, GA March 19 2012 – Qoppa Software’s new spring release of Java PDF components and libraries delivers API improvements for easier integration into Java and web applications, along with UI improvements to make the PDF components easier for users to work with.

Key among the features delivered this spring is the ability for Qoppa’s library jPDFProcess to create linearized PDF documents. Linearization allows fast viewing of even large PDF documents over the web because pages of linearized documents are made accessible without the need for downloading the entire file.

With the new release, programmers gain further control when integrating the PDF libraries into applications. The revised API now supports adding PDF content to a specific layer, creating rotated rubber stamps, and adds a convenience method to overlay a watermark on top of PDF documents when viewing and printing. Moreover, Qoppa’s team has made licensing easier by simplifying the process of requesting, validating and setting license keys.

This release also adds many improvements to Qoppa’s visual PDF components such as a new invert colors mode and enhancements around interactive PDF forms, including support for Submit and Reset buttons and even better editing of interactive form fields data.

Gerald Holmann, President, says “Qoppa’s spring release of our Java PDF library products is all about continuing to deliver easy to use, powerful PDF products. Our PDF technology makes it easy for developers to confidently PDF-enable their own applications, while remaining focused on their business logic.”

For additional details, change logs are published on Qoppa’s Knowledge Base:
