Subject RE: Apache™ PDFBox™ named an Open Source Partner Organization of the PDF Association : The Apache Software Foundation Blog

Adding to the remark by Louis.  The PDF Association also has some strong conformance testing
and that, combined with a way to examine and test PDFs handled/produced by Corinthia using
ODFBox, even if outside of Corinthia proper, is a valuable (side)-opportunity.

[ ... ]. I was thinking more in terms that PDFBox grants those with JVMs to manipulate PDFs
ad hoc. As a lot of enterprise docs. are PDFs, the utility of the service seems plain. (That
OpenOffice can do this, too, to a limited degree, as can other open source applications is
known; that they are not used this way and instead the maximally expensive options are used
just goes to show you that nature doesn’t just abhor a vacuum, it sucks.)

But to return to the point. If one aspect of Corinthia is to enable the manipulation of documents,
then it bears watching how other similar, if by no means congruent or identical, services
fare in the market. More expanded: to investigate the possibility of cooperation if not collaboration;
of mutual interest.
