Exporting PDFs in JLink on WF3 and WF4


Exporting PDFs in JLink on WF3 and WF4

Hi Everyone -

I'm writing a JLink project that includes, among other things, creation
of PDFs. I'm currently running WF3 (M200), and my site will upgrade to
WF4 within the year. I have two questions:

1. Does JLink support PDF export on WF3, or do I have to write
a Pro/Toolkit task DLL to make this happen?

2. Does JLink support PDF export on WF4?d

I don't mind writing a task DLL for this purpose, as long as I know
I truly need to do that.

I think WF5 will be the first release that allows support of PDF export in its pfc apis.

What we did in a Weblink project: We exported to Postscript PS and then used Ghostscript to convert from ps to pdf (called gs.exe after havingcreated the ps file).

This is of course (depending on your IT and Pro/E installation) a little bit of work to be installed (on every machine?) ...

From my point of viewwriting a task based dll in toolkit would be the better solution.
