Topic: Retrieving Raw PDF Data without saving it to disk

Hi Folks!

Following Problem:

So far I sent the pdf document with plain http with following JavaScript Method.

this.submitForm(url, ...);

Now I want to send a pdf document to an https server using client auth. It seems that Adobe Acrobat does not support this.

So I need to write a plugin to get the raw pdf data from the application *WITHOUT* saving it to disk. I already wrote a plugin with the write to disk method. But I get in trouble when Adobe Acrobat is running in a MSIE Window because AVAppGetActiveDoc(void) won't work here. (See the SDK)

I need a way to get the raw pdf document without using the filesystem. Is there some Method I didn't find in the Acrobat Core API?

Thanks in advance!
