activePDF WebGrabber™ is the industry leader in scalable, multithreaded URL-to-PDF or HTML-to-PDF generation. Whether converting static HTML files or dynamic, data-driven web-based reports, WebGrabber provides the functionality and control needed to create secure, useable, and printable PDF files.
Dynamic HTML-to-PDF Conversion
HTML from any source. Whether processing CGI scripts, ASP, JSP, or plain HTML, it makes no difference; activePDF WebGrabber handles them all. With WebGrabber, you can load HTML content from URLs, disk or even memory. You can also access secure sites with basic authentication or, with the IE interface, access data using integrated WindowsR NTLM authorization. Support for SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is included with the IE interface, so sensitive data can be accessed with peace of mind.
Support for web standards
WebGrabber is the only server-side HTML to PDF converter that supports HTML 3.2, HTML 4.0, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), Java applets, Flash images, and even activeX controls. Proxy server support is also included, making it possible for you to access data from behind your firewall.
PDF Layout Control
activePDF WebGrabber is the only product that supports page breaks so that your web-based reports look exactly the way you want. Whether it's embedded HTML or an entire URL, activePDF WebGrabber's dynamic header and footer support can help turn your existing web application into a PDF reporting engine. And, with WebGrabber's built-in page numbering capabilities, you can virtually guarantee your users won't get lost in large, complex reports.
Easy to Implement
activePDF WebGrabber is COM enabled, making integration with your existing application as simple as a single method call. With a few lines of code you can define a URL along with optional post data or a query string and WebGrabber will convert your data to PDF in seconds. Virtually anything that can be viewed in the browser can be converted to PDF, independent of the server side rendering language.
activePDF WebGrabber is tightly coupled with activePDF Server, so you can leverage our server-based performance, robust PDF output options, and other features such as native PDF encryption and linearization.
