We asked a few key questions and the answers are as follows.
1. Describe what the business you work in does, the industry it is in and your role in the team.
I am a self-employed consultant, primarily database development and administration. I also do application development using VB and C#
2. What is the name of the application that uses Debenu Quick PDF Library and what does it do?
PDF Extraction. I developed this application for a government client in Wyoming. The application extracts pages from their tax notices and assessments, which I receive as an approximately 25,000-page PDF. One 25,000-page file for each of the document types. It then reads lines from the extracted pages into a text file, then writes those values to an SQL table. Another application, Questys ECMx, then reads the data from SQL, matches it to the previously extracted and newly renamed PDF pages, and populates the content management fields with the data, as well as making the PDF available for viewing. The government agency uses this data for their constituents to view the tax assessment data online.
3. Specifically how is Debenu Quick PDF Library used in the application?
I use the library to loop through the 25,000-page document, extract every page, save the extracted page, single if a valuation notice, 2 pages if it’s the assessment, number each page, read the page, write that to a text file.
4. What do you think of Debenu Quick PDF Library?
I love it! Debenu Quick PDF Library is the best development product I’ve ever purchased. It’s so easy to use and very intuitive. Anyone looking for a PDF SDK need look no further!
