This on is great but I wonder if I can use it in a stock project. It’s under GNU Lesser General Public License and I don’t see anything about the stocks.

I think that "GNU Lesser General Public License " allows commercial use, right?

No, GNU GPL license means that your own software is also needs to be under this type of license which is not the case for commercial market place

i did some research on the topic because i had some clients which required the same functionality - you do not have such classes/apps etc which can do it now, and this is the truth. There is only some c++ code for parsing pdf. But to use it in commercial projects, you have to pay for it. It’s not hard to find it if you make a simple Google search.

hi,
if like for example, pdf files will convert into swf files,
and that swf files will used to read a pdf file,
Is that possible?..:slight_smile:
