Optimized (linear) PDF document generation feature

I noticed that generated PDF documents can be optimized in Aspose.PDF for .NET by means of the Document class. Nevertheless, I could not find the equivalent feature in Aspose.PDF for Java.

My questions:

1) Is the PDF linearization feature available in Aspose.PDF for Java

2) If yes, how can this be achieved?

3) If no, is this feature planned for implementation and when / which version of Aspose.PDF for Java ?


Hi David,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for considering Aspose.Pdf.

Well, I am afraid; the feature regarding PDF linearization / Optimization is not supported at the moment with Aspose.Pdf for Java. However, we already have added this feature request in our issue tracking system with issue id: PDFKITJAVA-14873 for implementation. But I am afraid, we don’t have a timeline at the moment regarding when this feature will be available. I have requested our development team to share any ETA (if possible) and I will share the details with you once I get a response from them.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Hi Nausherwan,
Thank you very much for your quick answer.
As an additional piece of information, please let me mention that we will soon need to generate (and handle) Linear PDF documents.
As you correctly mentionned it in your answer, we are therefore currently considering Aspose.PDF as a potential PDF generation candidate, and the linear PDF feature is therefore a crucial feature to us.
May I insist and get more information about the potential ETA of this feature in order to help us in our current study process ?

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Thank you for your interest in our product.

Our development team is currently working on the merged version of Aspose.Pdf for Java (which will include the features of Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java as well). This feature is planned to be supported in the merged component. I have asked the development team to share the details that when this feature will be available. I will update you as soon as I get a response from the development team.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Hi David,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

I received further details from our development team. The “Linearization feature” will be a part of our new Aspose.Pdf for Java (merged version). The new component is planned to be released in first half of Q2 2012. Please be patient and once the new merged version is available for download, we will update you via this forum thread.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Hi Nausherwan,

Thanks a lot for your answer, which gives us valuable visibility.


Kind regards,

David
