Developer Tools

We offer pre and post-processing solutions for developers that want to integrate PDF solutions in their applications. You can download and evaluate novaPDF SDK or OEM using the links below, but before releasing your final product you'll need to purchase a license.

The comparison below also shows the main differences between novaPDF SDK and OEM:

A pre-processing PDF solution for developers that want to add PDF creation capabilities to their applications on Windows XP/Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)/Windows 7/Windows 8 and Windows 2003 Server/2008 Server/Server 2012. Once installed the SDK will let you convert to PDF any printable information sent by your application. Integration is seamless, end-users will not realize a printer driver is used in the process.

novaPDF SDK also contains several samples for easier integration.

How novaPDF SDK works:

  • A COM object has to be integrated into your application. novaPDF SDK works with most programming languages (C/C++/C#, Visual C, Delphi, Visual Basic, ASP.NET, Java ...).
  • It is mandatory to distribute the novaPDF SDK printer in your application's setup. This is done under royalty free licensing (you only pay for the SDK license).
  • novaPDF SDK can be fully rebranded so end-users will not see the novaPDF brand at all (rebranding is optional and requires an additional payment).
  • You can integrate it without ordering and purchase a license only after you have fully tested it. When unlicensed a watermark will be added to all PDFs created with it.
  • The licensed novaPDF SDK (COM object) lets users create PDFs without the watermark only from your application, not by printing directly to the printer.
  • Your end-users can access the resulting PDF files as they wish.
  • You are not allowed to develop a PDF creator using novaPDF SDK. Your application must have additional relevant functionality.

post-processing PDF solution for developers that want to add PDF creation capabilities to their applications on Windows XP/Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)/Windows 7/Windows 8 and Windows 2003 Server/2008 Server/Server 2012. It has to be installed silently as a PDF printer directly from your application's setup. Once installed it can convert to PDF any document sent to it for printing and save that PDF in a pre-defined location.

novaPDF OEM also contains a sample application for easier integration.

How novaPDF OEM works:

  • You don't have to integrate anything into your application. Since no integration is required your application can be written in any programming language and you will still be able to use novaPDF OEM.
  • It is mandatory to distribute the novaPDF OEM printer in your application's setup. This is done under royalty free licensing (you only pay for the OEM license).
  • novaPDF OEM can be fully rebranded so end-users will not see the novaPDF brand at all (rebranding is optional and requires an additional payment).
  • You can integrate it without ordering and purchase a license after you have fully tested it. When unlicensed a watermark will be added to all PDFs created with it.
  • The licensed novaPDF OEM printer allows users to create PDF files from any application with printing capabilities.
  • The resulting PDF files must be accessible only to your application.
  • You are not allowed to develop a PDF creator using novaPDF OEM. Your application must have additional relevant functionality.
