ICEsoft Introduces Industrial-Strength Java PDF Rendering Engine
ICEpdf 2.0 is now the highest quality Java PDF rendering engine available

CALGARY, Alberta. - June 28, 2005 - ICEsoft Technologies today announced ICEpdf® 2.0, the leading Java PDF rendering technology available on the market today. This release boasts dramatic increases in rendering accuracy and performance. ICEpdf 2.0 includes an entirely new Java font engine making ICEpdf compatible with all PDF font types. In addition, it now supports incremental document loading which dramatically improves the performance, especially with larger PDF documents. ICEpdf can also be combined with ICEbrowser® to view PDF content embedded in HTML.

ICEpdf is designed to fully support PDF document viewing within Java applications in a manner not possible with the native Adobe Reader® application. Benefits include:

  • Seamless integration with Java client applications, allowing complete control over the configuration, exposed functionality and user interface
  • A lightweight static and dynamic memory footprint
  • Easy deployment to any Java platform without the hassles of Java-to-native integration issues

ICEpdf is 100 percent pure Java and can be used with any J2SE or J2EE JVM, v1.3.1 or greater. It is fully deployable using standard mechanisms for Java application deployment, such as an Applet or via Java Web Start. It can also be deployed in client workstations for interactive PDF viewing and in headless server environments for non-visual PDF content conversion and extraction applications.

"Anyone familiar with Java PDF viewers will be amazed with the rendering accuracy and performance of ICEpdf 2.0," said Rob Lepack, VP marketing at ICEsoft Technologies. "We're setting new standards for "industrial-strength" Java rendering technology."
