is it permitted to develop a plugin for adobe READER which provides ODBC connectivity or which provides an external JSObject reference.
Both things aren't supported by adobe reader, so that's why i ask. i need this functionality with adobe reader...
It seems very unlikely that Adobe would grant a license which avoided
the need to buy Acrobat for your project. But I can't speak for them.
You MIGHT hear more details if you posted in the Acrobat SDK forum.
