This repository contains a simplified and optimized client library for the webPDF server, and serves as an alternative to more complex REST or SOAP APIs. The library implements the required stubs and session management in ready-to-use interface classes and provides a common object based parameterization for webservice calls in both protocols.
webPDF is a commercial multi-platform server solution for creating and processing PDF documents. To use the webPDF wsclient library for webservice calls, a running webPDF installation is required. A demo version as Windows installation, Linux package or as a virtual machine can be downloaded from the product page.
Note: Unless otherwise marked, the following is based on webPDF version 8 or newer. If you are using an older version please update to use all parameters for the current release of the library. You will always find the newest version at the product download page.
Note: The version 2.0.2 requires at least webPDF server version 126.96.36.1999
