By a web tool, do you mean an ordinary application that the user can
install which connects to the web and displays PDFs? Or something
Would this be for end users who have purchased Acrobat Professional?
By "webtool" I basically mean an AJAX web application that performs a specific function: viewing and modifying PDFs.
I need to find a way to do this so end users would NOT need to purchase Acrobat.
Is this possible with an Adobe API? With Flash + PDF Plugins? With Adobe AIR? Or do I need a third party tool, ActiveX, etc?
I've seen it done with Flex, which means in theory it should work with AIR as well.
However, the Acrobat SDK would be way out of range for this. You are not allowed to install Acrobat on a web server (section 2.3 of the EULA), so it would have to be entirely separate from the Acrobat SDK, since the SDK is nothing and does nothing without Acrobat installed.
EDIT: Actually, I believe it was using FlashPaper, not a direct PDF-in-Flash render.
