I am a developer that is on the whole unfamiliar with the available PDF solutions.

Below is a task I would like to perform...If you could point me in the right fundamental direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

What I have: a PDF document with fields.

What I want to do: Have this PDF document rendered in a web browser for the client. The client fills out the rendered PDF form and hits submit. The data is sent to a back application where it is incorporated into the same PDF file and emailed to a party based on logic defined on the submitted fields.

I'm aware of the existence of FDF... my main trouble is how to render the PDF in the web browser in a predictable and clear way. I don't want the possibility of the PDF being opened in acrobat client side, etc. In other words, it would be nice if the submit button was outside the scope of the PDF itself.

I'm really not sure though...

any ideas?
