In order to convert DOC/DOCX to PDF, you need to install MS Office and also Acrobat on your LiveCycle Server. But there is no need to install any software on the client. You can only buy and install PDF Generator ES solution component. Once you installed PDF Generator you can invoke it through Java API or Web Services.
For further information:
Thanks a lot for your quick response. I visited that link.
The problem is, as I have mentioned in my previous post, we are in need of a solution which is platform independent so MS Office installation on the server would not be possible for all the platform. Is there any other option for such requirement? Is Webservice option available which can give direct output in PDF form? or anything else?
Thanks in Advance.
PDF/G can also leverage Open Office which can ne platform independant but the fidelity of your documents will not be as good as with office. You can run PDF/G on a Windows machine and use a web service call from other platform independant programs to convert the documents that you want. This way Office can be used (on this other platform) while still maintaining your platform independance.
