Topic: Service/Code to extract metadata from PDF
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 128252

I am looking for a tool (service,code,application) that can be used on a server to extract metadata from a PDF file, so that we can save that metadata to an XML file. The resulting metadata will be upload for use in document management systems. The system is on a Windows 2003 server and developed in .NET.

We gave some thought of putting Acrobat 7.0 on the server since it can do what we need, but that poses two problems - that's not a server side tool and Adobe's license model for putting their app on a server makes this prohibitive.

Any ideas? We found one from www.websupergoo. Any others?
