Update: JPDF2HTM5 has been rebranded as BuildVu and JPDFForms has been rebranded as FormVu

What is happening with the PDF to HTML5 online converter and web services?

A large number of people have asked us to clarify what we our future plans are for our Cloud and Online PDF to HTML5 conversion services (which are currently free). So here is a brief news update….

The online converter

The online converter (which you can access via a slick web front end) will remain free for the moment, but we will be limiting this to 10 conversions in any month. If you have a registration (which is free to do and only requires your email address) you will be able to do 20 conversions in any calendar month. We will continue to provide some commercial and charitable users unlimited access (this is entirely at our discretion). File size will be limited to 50 Megabytes (based on our monitoring the service over the last 6 months).

Web services

The web services now requires a login, which is free and will give you 100 free conversions. After that you will need to pay to use the service once it goes live. We have limited maximum file size to 100 Megabytes (based on our testing the system for the last 6 months).

Server license

We have had lots of requests for the ability to use more files (both larger numbers and bigger files), the ability to avoid sending files across the Internet and the requirement to host the service internally. So we have added a server license option, which allows you to run the software on one of your servers. We see the obvious use case for this as Universities, Companies and any organisation wanting to provide this service internally to their own users behind they firewall. We are also considering allowing these customers to be able to license the GlassFish code we have running our online service for their own internal use.

We hope that clarifies things. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact us. And we hope you continue to find the service useful in whatever form you use it….
