    Display a PDF in a web architecture

    BruceNewsY Level 1

      All interested Flex developers,

       

      I was asked to post this entire issue to Flex forum.

       

      Flash Web applications cannot directly display PDF images (unlike PNG, JPEG, GIF images).

       

      Our network architecture is:

      user browser <---- Flex web app <---- SOAP/WSDL protocol <---- backend PDF file server

       

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

       

      A) Can anyone map a PDF ByteArry to JPEG or PNG?

       

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

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

       

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

       

      thanks,

      Medical Flash developers
