I am in the process of doing a Proof Of Concept / Evaluating products that can help us build a Java Application to Convert a PDF document to a Searchable PDF.
I wanted to check is there any simple JAVA API from Adobe to achive this ? Any direction in this regard is greatly appreciated.@
You can achieve this using LiveCycle PDF Generator JAVA API. You can find required code here:
|//Set createPDF2 parameter values|
|String adobePDFSettings = "Standard";|
|String securitySettings = "No Security";|
|String fileTypeSettings = "Standard OCR";|
"Standard OCR" file type setting will run OCR on input pdf. In the code, instead of doc file provide a pdf file. Resultant pdf will be searchable PDF i.e OCRed PDF.
Feel feel to ask any further questions.
Do we need to install the complete product suite "LiveCycle " using "lces_server_11_0_0_weblogic_all_win.zip" ? OR is there a stand alone java solution ? Please advise.
There is no standalone java solution. You need to install LiveCycle server.
As you have mentioned "lces_server_11_0_0_weblogic_all_win.zip" it means these are the LC ES4(11.0.0) installation bits for Weblogic application server which is supposed to install on supported windows platform.
Thank you Sachin.
I have tested the functionality using full deployment of LiveCycle ES and the results are satisfactory.
As per our business needs, We will be needing only the PdfConverter module of LiveCycle ES.
We want to proceed further and contact the Adobe Sales Department for purchasing the necessary licenses. Could you please let me know the procedure or contact details ?
