Qoppa Software’s fall release of Java PDF libraries and components improves PDF text extraction and rendering performance

Java & PDF - Qoppa does it alL!Atlanta – September 12 2012 – Qoppa Software, a leading provider of PDF solutions, releases newly improved versions of all of their Java PDF library products.

Qoppa’s Java PDF class libraries are enhanced with a new powerful algorithm for text extraction.

“The order and organization of text objects in a PDF document do not necessarily correspond to the logical reading order.  We have developed a new text extraction algorithm which detects the natural flow of even structured PDF documents such as research or newspaper articles. We’re very happy with the results when compared with other PDF tools.” says Gerald Holmann, Qoppa President.

The new release also adds enhanced memory management so the PDF libraries can handle rendering and printing of very large CCITT fax images (200Mb and above).

In this fall release, Qoppa’s Java PDF visual components benefit from a new tile-based rendering approach which splits each page of a PDF document into multiple tiles that can be rendered and cached independently. This new strategy enables implementing out of thread rendering and improving image caching and memory usage, which makes it easier to work with intensive PDF documents in 3 areas:

  • Faster rendering
  • Smoother drawing of annotations
  • Better GUI responsiveness

Also new in this release is Qoppa’s pan and zoom tool which will allow users to zoom in and out of high-resolution pages and move around a page (“pan”) while also displaying a larger view of a page.  This new tool should greatly benefit professionals working in the media, print, and graphics industries.

Thanks to the revision of Qoppa’s text extraction algorithm, text selection and highlight is also greatly improved in the visual components.  Now cursor based, it follows the logical reading order of structured documents and allows marking up text across columns.

“The new release brings our Java PDF rendering components to a whole new level, delivering one of the best user experiences available on the market when it comes to viewing, marking up and scrolling through PDF documents.” – Gerald Holmann, Qoppa President

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.”

“Based on customer demand, we added support for the latest Microsoft Word format in our java conversion library, jWordConvert. Since Word 2007 format is so different from the previous format, we developed a whole new rendering engine. jWordConvert can now process any Word file whether its format is .doc or .docx. Customer feedback indicates that jWordConvert is outstanding in its reliability and ease of deployment. Qoppa will also incorporate these conversion capabilities into our desktop editor PDF Studio, and PDF Automation Server our workflow solution.” says Gerald Holmann, President of Qoppa Software.

jWordConvert is a Java library for integration by developers into their Java applications on the server or client side. The library runs on all platforms including Windows, Linux, Unix, Solaris and Mac, is self-contained and requires no third party software. jWordConvert can read and render Word files natively to convert to PDF, to convert to images, or to print the documents automatically. Resulting PDF documents can be protected with permissions and passwords for added security. The new version 2.0 also adds the ability to convert and merge multiple Word files into a single PDF document in one step.

Qoppa Software Automates Conversion of Word to PDF, Word to Images and Printing of Word Files

April 29, 2011 – Qoppa Software, a leading provider of PDF solutions, is pleased to announce the new release of PDF Automation Server 3 (PAS) with the following enhancements: Word to PDF conversion, Word to images conversion, Word file printing, improved performance and memory management, user interface enhancements, and improved PDF preflight.

This unique multi-platform workflow server product automates the receiving, processing, and routing of files. PAS accepts incoming files of multiple types from local and network folders, email, or ftp servers. It then performs a wide range of manipulations, based on preset criteria. Once changed, both the original files and the output files can be routed to a range of destinations.

“Qoppa’s PDF Automation Server is unique because it doesn’t require any third party software to interpret Word documents, most other products require Ghostscript, the Open Office server, or Microsoft Word to run. Additionally, PAS is 100% Java and thus delivers new Word conversion and automated printing on all server platforms” says Gerald Holmann, President of Qoppa Software.

PDF Automation Server is entirely based on Qoppa Software proprietary PDF technology. It is a reliable and affordable system to automate PDF workflows that works on Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix (Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX) and any other Java enabled platform.

Operations that can be performed by PAS include printing, preflight , digital signing, security management, assembling, merging, splitting, cropping pages, converting to/from images, extracting data, merging data, flattening fields and annotations, stamping, importing/exporting annotations, and more.

New general release of Java PDF components/libraries adds group annotations & unlimited file size access

Qoppa Software, a leading provider of PDF solutions, announces the general new release of their PDF libraries and components. This new version of Qoppa’s developer products continues the decade long tradition of Qoppa Software delivering tools for integration within web-based and java applications to quickly and reliably add PDF document capabilities such as viewing, printing, signing, form filling, markup and manipulation.

jPDFViewer, Qoppa’s Java component to display PDF documents,
as well as jPDFPrint, Qoppa’s Java library to print PDF documents,
now offer support for unlimited PDF file sizes as well as a faster document loading time.

“These improvements are possible thanks to the implementation of a new PDF source which accesses the PDF content directly from the files instead of having to load the contents into memory.” explains Gerald Holmann, Qoppa Software CEO.

jPDFNotes, Qoppa’s Java component to display, mark up and sign PDF documents, now offers full support for group annotations. Grouped annotations can be copied, moved, deleted, reviewed or flattened at once.

Performance has also been improved in Qoppa’s PDF engine, especially when rendering graphical documents with transparency. Users in the graphics and pre-press industry may enjoy faster processing times, in some cases up to 5 times faster, when printing and displaying such documents.
