Topic: Acrobat/Server side Issues.....

I would just like to clarify an idea I have as to the use of Acrobat PDFs as a printing solution for a web application.

On the web server a PDF sits until this PDF (an application form for a product) is called via an ActiveServerPage script that uses the ActiveX (FDFAcX.dll) to populate form fields via a MSIE5.0 Browser.

The user views the PDF in the browser (via Adobe Reader) and inputs their details. They click on a submit form button on the PDF which submits the FDF data as HTML which is then passed to a SQL 6.5 back-end database.

Is it alright to use Acrobat in this way with the PDF sitting on the web server being called by Joe Public out on the WWW (supposing they have Reader)? I am coming from a licensing point of view.

Thanks
