The first application of Jaws PDF Library COM Edition is within the innovative
online PDF creation service launched by T-Online to its 10 million subscribers in
Jill Taylor/Global Graphics
Germany at the CeBIT international technology trade fair in Hanover earlier this
+44 1223 873874
month. The T-Online service uses a number of Global Graphics’ software
components within the solution, including Jaws PDF Library COM Edition to
produce robust PDF files; a component based on the Jaws RIP to produce
preview files; and a custom-built web-based front end.
Jaws PDF Library COM Edition is based on the core technology of Global
Graphics’ Jaws PDF family of PDF creation and editing products. It gives
Windows-based software developers a comprehensive programming toolkit
featuring a Component Object Model interface to make it compatible with any
Windows-based application using Visual Basic® 6, VB.NET® or Visual C#®
scripting languages.
Jaws PDF Library COM Edition is fully compatible with the latest PDF specification
version 1.4. Many procedures and definitions of the PDF file output can be
configured including: Image compression for ColorImage, GreyImage,
MonoImage; resolution; security and advanced PDF output options. Basic 14
fonts are built in as a ROM file system and other fonts can be added using the
described font functions. Added fonts are stored as ‘reference’ or ‘stubs’ on a
hard disk or other defined location. Users have the flexibility to redefine any of
the procedures or definitions as necessary.
In addition to its popular Jaws PDF Creator™ and Jaws PDF Editor™ software for
end users, Global Graphics provides a suite of cost-effective, reliable and easy to
use Jaws PDF-based tools for developers including: Jaws PDF Courier™
(generation and delivery of PDF files), Jaws PDF Library (PostScript to PDF and
PDF to PostScript conversion for Windows, Linux®, Macintosh® and Sun®
Solaris platforms) and now Jaws PDF Library COM Edition (PostScript to PDF
conversion for the Windows platform).
Jaws PDF Library COM Edition is available by license agreement to ISVs, OEMs,
and system integrators. For further information please visit
