Adobe® PDF Library™

Mapsoft is a licensee of the Adobe® PDF Library that we use in some of our products and we can also use it in Custom Software Development.

Custom Software Application Development

The Adobe PDF Library is a software development kit (SDK) that allows developers to create applications that can create, manipulate, and manage PDF documents. It provides a set of APIs that can be used to create PDFs from scratch, manipulate existing PDFs, extract data from PDFs, and more. The library is often used in enterprise and government applications, as well as in applications that require the creation of PDF documents for printing or for electronic distribution and other custom software development solutions.


  • Developed by Adobe® and Datalogics
  • Built with the same core technology that Adobe® uses to build Adobe® Acrobat®. Much Acrobat plug-in developer code can be reused.  
  • C/C++ and C# .NET developments including .NET Core.
  • High level of compatibility with current and past versions of PDF and PDF standards such as PDF/X and PDF/A.
  • High levels of development code compatability with Acrobat and Reader plug-ins. We have some solutions that work with Acrobat and the PDF Library.
  • Take advantage of a over a decade of Adobe® PDF Library development experience at Mapsoft.
  • Can be integrated with Server and Cloud based services. We also have .NET, HTML5 and JavaScript skills in house.

PDF Library Plugins

There are several Adobe PDF Library plug-ins available that can be used to extend the functionality of the library. Some examples of these plug-ins include:

  • Digital Signatures: Allows users to digitally sign and verify PDF documents, ensuring the authenticity and integrity of the document.
  • PDF Optimizer: Allows users to optimize PDF documents for faster loading and smaller file sizes.
  • PDF Security: Provides security features such as encryption and password protection for PDF documents.
  • PDF Redaction: Allows users to redact sensitive information from PDF documents, such as personally identifiable information or confidential data.
  • PDF Forms: Allows users to create and fill out interactive PDF forms.

The Adobe PDF Library is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems, and it can be used with a variety of programming languages, including C++, Java, and .NET.
