PDFTextStream v2.1 Adds Form Update Features to PDF Text Conversion Library

Share Article

PDFTextStream, the enterprise-class PDF text and metadata extraction library, now also offers equally robust form update functionality. Already a worthy asset for any document-centric web application or software package, PDFTextStream is even more valuable now that it can drive the generation of interactive forms customized on the fly for customers or partners.

We're glad to be able to make that growing requirement a little easier to fulfill today.

Snowtide Informatics Systems, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class PDF content extraction solutions, today announced the release of PDFTextStream v2.1 for Java, .NET, and Python. v2.1 adds form update functionality to the PDF text and metadata extraction library, a key requirement of many document-centric web applications and software package vendors. Such functionality is necessary for generating customized interactive PDF forms for customers, business partners, government compliance, and data archival requirements.

"We have consistently heard from our customers that they wanted to see us add form update capability. It's a little out-of-the-box for us, since PDFTextStream has always been purely an extraction library, but the need for a combined solution was simply too great to ignore," said Chas Emerick, CEO and Founder of Snowtide Informatics Systems, Inc.

"So many document workflows are moving to PDF, and getting custom form-generation tools into enterprise applications and shrinkwrapped solutions is becoming more and more important," he added. "We're glad to be able to make that growing requirement a little easier to fulfill today."

Enterprise-Class PDF Solutions, Continually Redefined

v2.1 expands PDFTextStream's lead in providing the highest level of functionality and performance in PDF solutions. Beyond adding form update functionality, v2.1 makes some additional nips and tucks to PDFTextStream's robust profile:

  •      Kodak print job data extraction (%KDK commands) is now supported
  •      Every aspect of PDFTextStream's documentation has been revised and improved
  •      Four additional widely-used PDF file format variants (which do not follow the official PDF document specification) have been identified and supported
  •      PDFTextStream's document merge utility has been patched to eliminate two bugs

PDFTextStream licenses start at $1,399 USD per server; redistribution licenses for OEM partners are available at reasonable royalty-free rates. For additional PDFTextStream v2.1 product details, please visit http://snowtide.com/PDFTextStream.
