Converting Postscript to PDF Documents by Adobe Docs

Abstract

About the Distiller Service
The Distiller® service converts PostScript®, Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), and PRN files to compact, reliable, and more secure PDF files over a network. The Distiller service is frequently used to convert large volumes of print documents to electronic documents, such as invoices and statements. Converting documents to PDF also allows enterprises to send their customers a paper version and an electronic version of a document.

NOTE
For more information about the Distiller service, see Services Reference for AEM Forms.

Converting PostScript to PDF documents
This topic describes how you can use the Distiller Service API (Java and web service) to programmatically convert PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), and PRN files to PDF documents.

NOTE
For more information about the Distiller service, see Services Reference for AEM Forms.

NOTE
To convert PostScript files to PDF documents, one of the following needs to be installed on the server hosting AEM Forms: Acrobat 9 or Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redistributable package.

Include project files

Include the necessary files in your development project. If you are creating a client application by using Java, include the necessary JAR files. If you are using web services, make sure you include the proxy files.

Create a Distiller service client

Before you can programmatically perform a Distiller service operation, you must create a Distiller service client. If you are using the Java API, create a DistillerServiceClient object. If you are using the web service API, create a DistillerServiceService object.

Retrieve the file to convert

You must retrieve the file that you want to convert. For example, to convert a PS file to a PDF document, you must retrieve the PS file.

Invoke the PDF creation operation

After you create the service client, you can then invoke the PDF creation operation. This operation will need information about the document to be converted, including the path to the target document.

Save the PDF document

You can save the PDF document as a PDF file.
