A COM object has to be integrated into your application. novaPDF SDK works with most programming languages (C/CPlusPlus/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).
