    Display a PDF in a web architecture

    BruceNewsY Level 1

      Flash Web applications cannot directly display PDF images

      (unlike PNG, JPEG, GIF images).

       

      Our network architecture is:

      user <---- IIS web runs FB web app <---- WSDL <---- backend PDF file server

       

      The IIS FB web app receives a Base64 PDF and decodes to a ByteArray[]

       

      A) Can anyone map PDF BYteArry to JPEG or PNG?

       

      B) Can we write a temporary file.PDF in the II web server?

      Then we could display the file.PDF using a web iFrame.

       

      C) Does someone have a neat idea to display a PDF in our web apps without prompting the user?

       

      thanks,
