Datalogics PDF Java Toolkit 2.0 Available Now

pdfjt-boxWell… I can finally reveal what I’ve been working on for the last few months. In addition to projects related to Practical:PDF, I’m now also contracting at Datalogics as their PDF Developer Evangelist. The best part is, I’m working with… ok… for… Chuck Myers again. He and I have a lot of great history together from our time at Adobe.

Historically, Datalogics has been one of the few vendors that has been authorized to sell and support the Adobe PDF Library, the Adobe PDF Print Engine, and other PDF development tools. Recently, they acquired the exclusive rights to distribute the Datalogics PDF Java Toolkit which has been developed and refined for years at Adobe Systems and is now available to application developers and systems integrators. Today we announced the availability of version 2.0.

I’ve got decades of experience working with the Acrobat JavaScript API and other web technologies like PHP and jQuery but Java isn’t one of my strengths. As a matter of fact, it’s been about 10 years since I took a class in Java programming and that was just a half day introductory course; I haven’t touched it since. However, the PDF Java Toolkit is so easy to get started with that I was able to review the included samples and in just a couple of hours created my own application to populate fields with data and flatten the form; it’s that straightforward.

The PDF Java Toolkit is something I’m really excited about so I’ll be blogging both here and at the Datalogics blog pretty frequently for the foreseeable future. I do love to play with new toys.

Please take a look at my first post at Datalogics and let me know what you think.
