Native Java API

In addition to the JACOB (Java COM) API, easyPDF Printer SDK is also available as a native Java API. The API layer is written in 100% Java code. It does not rely on any COM objects or Java-Native Interface (JNI).


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

There are numerous advantages to using this new native Java API, instead of the older JACOB version:

There are no known disadvantages to using the native Java API versus the JACOB API.
