GdPicture.NET Document Imaging SDK and DocuVieware HTML5 Viewer and Document Management Kit now include PDF/A validation features.

Muret, France, November 9th

ORPALIS is pleased to announce the availability of the PDF/A validation feature in its suite of SDKs.

PDF/A is a crucial feature for many industries, especially the legal, medical, banking, and government domains. PDF/A support in the GdPicture.NET and DocuVieware toolkits now includes a validator to make files compliant with ISO 19005.
Developers are now able to get their PDF/A documents validated, without the need to buy any additional tool.

The GdPicture.NET PDF/A validator provides conformance validation for all PDF/A versions:

  • PDF/A-1 (ISO 19005-1:2005)
  • PDF/A-2 (ISO 19005-2:2011)
  • PDF/A-3 (ISO 19005-3:2012)

It automatically determines the claimed conformance of the document.
It provides both a basic validation result or a detailed machine-readable report (XML).

The engine analyses and validates the following elements:

  • PDF structure
  • lexical, syntactic, and semantic levels
  • metadata
  • fonts
  • color space
  • other properties

The French company will release this functionality in its new Cloud ecosystem PassportPDF, with a dedicated REST API and a free microservice available via the free web application AvePDF.
