This is exciting! We now have a live demo of Qoppa’s new HTML5 PDF viewer! It is a zero footprint, high-fidelity PDF viewer that can be integrated into any website or web application, without requiring any client-side plugin:
It’s not officially released yet, but it is already pretty good! Why so? Because this viewer uses what Qoppa Software is best at: Java and PDF rendering! So it is not surprising that the first version of our viewer is already superior to many HTML PDF viewers available on the market.
How does it work? PDFs documents are converted dynamically to SVG on the server, then served to any browser supporting HTML5.
The beauty of this new viewer is that:
- on the client side, the viewer works everywhere, without requiring any plugin or certificate, because all platforms these days – Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, iOS, Android, etc… – have a browser that supports HTML5.
- and on the server side, Qoppa’s libraries are 100% Java so any J2EE server will do (Tomcat, JBoss, Glassfish, Websphere, Weblogic), on any operating system, be it Windows, Linux or Unix.
