activePDF Server Overview
Server-based Print-to-PDF Generation
Need to deliver existing reports, statements or other application data as PDF? Why re-invent the wheel when you can just print to PDF! Don't be fooled by imitations - activePDF Server is the only PDF print driver designed from the ground up for multi-threaded production in high stress environments.
With both COM and .NET APIs, Server enables you to easily print-to-PDF from virtually any source - as long as your application is capable of printing, you can integrate with Server to generate high-quality, standards-compliant PDF output. Visit our examples site to see how easy it is to integrate with C#, ASP, VB, PHP, Ruby and more.
Convert Legacy Output
Or perhaps you have a legacy application already generating output in another print format? In addition to its robust print-to-PDF functionality, Server simplifies the task of converting several common output types directly to PDF. With built-in support for PCL, XPS, PostScript and over 40 image types, you can use Server to transform output from these legacy systems directly to PDF with a single method call.
Precise control over PDF settings
With custom options for page scaling, watermarking, PDF security, digital signatures, and more, Server enables you to deliver exactly what your users require. PDF options can be set at the printer or API level, providing you the best balance of flexibility and maintainability. Click the features tab above to read more about Server features.
