Native .NET API

In addition to the standard COM API, easyPDF SDK is also available as a native .NET API. The API layer is written in 100% managed (verifiable) C# code, without using any native function calls. It does not rely on any COM objects, p/invoke, or managed-native interop.

Rationale

The native .NET API works by launching an external worker process (also known as a sandbox), which is not a .NET application, but rather native x86 machine code. However, this external process is completely isolated. Named pipes are used for communication in between the 100% .NET world and the x86 sandbox.

There are numerous advantages to using this new native .NET API, instead of the older COM objects:

There are no known disadvantages to using the native .NET API versus the COM interop API.
