This is my first time posting in this forum, so hopefully iv posted in the correct part =)
I am in the middle of createing a web based system, written in PHP, and one of the requirements of this system is to create a PDF/X1A document dynamically. The user will input some data into the webpage and then upon submitting the page a new PDF/X1A will be created, at least that is the aim. I have trawled the intenet with no joy.
I have read that i will ba able to create a PDF/X1A document using Photoshop, InDesign and some other Adobe products. This is not going to be useful in terms of my requirements unfortunatly.
Please could someone inform me if creating a PDF/X1A document dynamically is possible ? If it is not, are there any work arounds i can use to fulfil my requirements ?
It is possible to create PDFs (of any flavor) using programming. You can create your own pdfs if you know the language specification or you can use one of Adobe's LiveCycle Server products to dynamically created pdfs. This latter method is more expensive, but probably easier to work with and easier to scale.
