Announcing JPedal XFA

49 sec read

It will come as no surprise to readers of our blog that we have been working on XFA support. We have had test code in previous releases and feedback from lots of testers.

With today’s release we have put this into a separate product (JPedalXFA) which brings all the features of JPedal and adds support for XFA forms. All existing customers will be upgraded to JPedal XFA – new customers will have a choice of purchasing JPedal or JPedalXFA.

XFA is a complex file format and we are still implementing some features for XFA (support for HTML tags in display, some very complex layouts, dynamic reflow across pages, images for Radio Buttons). We aim to add for a release on 1st October 2013. To reflect this and encourage early adopters, we will therefore be offering JPedalXFA at a discount until that date.

JPedalXFA will be available as an option to download on our site next week (and existing customers will have access). All the test XFA code has been removed from JPedal.

The PDF to HTML5 converter uses the existing JPedal and does not currently offer any Forms or XFA support. Expect an announcement on that in the near future…

This post is part of our “XFA Articles Index” in these articles, we aim to help you understand XFA.
