Adobe Systems Incorporated announced the Adobe Document Server, which enables enterprise customers to automatically generate and customize Adobe PDF files and forms. Adobe Document Server is built for easy integration with existing ERP and CRM systems, Content Management Systems, document management systems, and databases. The software lets companies automate document creation and assembly for technical manuals, brochures, proposals and policies, as well as create custom electronic forms with pre-populated fields, and produce business reports that contain charts and graphs dynamically generated from data in a database. With support for APIs for Java, Perl, COM and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) environments, programmers can develop scripts for automating the creation of Adobe PDF documents. Adobe Document Server also supports Extensible Style Language Formatting Objects (XSL-FO). Adobe Document Server is expected to be available by the end of 2002, with pricing starting at US$20,000 per CPU. www.adobe.com/products/server/documentserver/main.html
