PDF to JavaFX conversion – A little surprise for November

28 sec read

We have been looking at javaFX and it is a pretty cool new technology. We also noticed that it would not need a great deal of extra work to write a PDF to JavaFX convertor. So you will find an interesting new example in the next JPedal release…

It will not offer all the sophistication of the PDF to HTML5 conversion (so font conversion will not be included), but it will be free and you can play with the source code. If there is demand for extra features, we would consider releasing an enhanced version. Or maybe Oracle would like to sponsor it 😉

We have loads of ideas for tapping into JavaFX features for later releases, and we would really like your feedback. So let us know what you think and enjoy….

  1. I have a project that has a real need for rendering PDF files embedded in JFX. I can see a real benefit for this and I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

    Nice one.
