Aloaha PDF Server
Traditionally it was impossible to use the default PDF Reader to save PDF Forms incl. Data to disk. This changed with the introduction of the Aloaha PDF Form Saver. The Aloaha PDF Form Saver is a PDF Reader which can also fill&save PDF Forms to disk or import/export the Data as XML to/from disk.
Sometimes it is not possible that all user install the Aloaha PDF Form Saver. For example a bank or government cannot instruct their customers to purchase the Aloaha Form Saver.
In cases where it is impossible to install our Aloaha PDF Form Saver on all client machines it is possible to host the PDF Forms on our Aloaha PDF Form Server. This will automatically make every PDF Form saveable from within the Adobe Reader without having to install any addtional Software on the clients side.
As an example please call http://pki.aloaha.com/pdf. A PDF Form will open in your Adobe Reade. You cann fill in that form and press the "Send Email" Button of the form.
The Form Data will now be merged by the Aloaha PDF Server into the PDF Document. This merged file will be digitally signed and timestamped. This document then will be transfered back to the PDF Reader and displayed on screen. In this example the timestamped signature is the evidence that the document had been delivered at that time.
Additionally an email will be sent to you containing links to the archived Data and PDF File.
Both files could be opened directly with the Aloaha PDF Saver.
If you open the XML file with the Aloaha Saver it will automatically load the original form and display them merged.
The PDF Document is the merged document and can be opened with our standard PDF Reader.
The Aloaha PDF Server is based on the Aloaha PDF SDK. Everything which is possible with the Aloaha PDF SDK can be done server based with the Aloaha PDF Server.
