Comparing PDF documents using i-net PDFC is simple to do. A quick drag-and-drop of two PDF files onto the application and a click on the start button will display every difference the two documents have.
For custom scenarios, i-net PDFC offers powerful Java and .NET APIs and a server with a REST-ful web API. This is perfect for multi-user environments and custom integrations - whether running PDF comparisons on your Jenkins CI or in your intranet.
i-net PDFC is constantly being improved. We rapidly release minor versions and updates to have our customers get even small tweaks in the comparison engine as soon as possible.
Since we rely on customer input and feedback, if you are not getting the expected results for some PDF files, we ask you to contact us and send the PDF files. We will assist you in either tweaking the comparison settings or by further improving our comparison engine.
As you can see from the adjacent list, we offer our customers support on issues related to our products over a long period of time. We generally recommend using the latest available minor version. However, if you encounter any problems, please do not hesitate to contact our support team.
We will be happy to work with you to resolve any requests you may have for updates to versions that are no longer officially supported.
i-net PDFC is released annually with x.4 and x.10 versions. The x.10 version is considered Long-Term Support (LTS) and receives prioritized bug fixes. The x.10 version replaces the x.4 version as soon as it is released and no new features are added to x.4. Analogously, this applies to the x.10 with subsequently released x.4 version.
