PDF is a format often used to generate documents that were meant to be printed in paper.

Many Web applications need to generate PDF to address their users printing needs. However, what most Web applications do is to generate HTML.

This class can minimize the development effort by allowing to convert HTML generated by Web applications to PDF documents using a Web service.

It provides some unique features that help developers to customize better their application needs like setting page headers, footers and margins, adjusting the printed document viewport size and zoom level, add stamps and watermarks to the PDF document, encrypt the document, as well add owner and user passwords to it.
