Subject Re: PDF/A preflight with PDFBOX : open source implementation
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 14:28:27 GMT
Very, very cool, Guillaume! I hope I'll have some time soon, to take a
look and give some feedback. I was involved with adding PDF/A support to
Apache FOP and I always wished we had the validation side, too. Would
you consider donating the code to Apache to include it in Apache PDFBox?
I think the feature would be a great addition to PDFBox.
