#229 new enhancement

Unsupported document (can't render PDFs that check Adobe Reader is there using JavaScript)

Description

The uploaded pdf is a from the Swedish pass-port authority. Some new fancy version of pdf-document I guess, which I'm not able to open. Instead it produces a message:

"Please wait... If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document.

  • Priority changed from major to Feedback Pending

this is a poppler problem it seems. as also with other poppler based apps it's not working. so i suggest you to report this to the poppler people. http://poppler.freedesktop.org/

Ok, thanks for your investigation. I'll pass it to them.

The problem has been discussed, but they seem unsure of who's problem it is:

it seems like poppler will not support such stuff in the near future.

  • Component changed from Lucide Core to Plugin: PDF
  • Priority changed from Feedback Pending to minor
  • Summary changed from Unsupported document to Unsupported document (cannot read XFA)

Changing component to Plugin: PDF and priority to minor, as this is a poppler issue. Also changing summary to better reflect the underlying request (support for rendering XFA forms in PDF documents).

If this is a higher priority, then as discussed in the poppler ticket referenced above, we might be able to look at implementing a separate library.

(JPedal Java PDF Forms Library from IDR Solutions apparently provides this support for Java, though I don't believe it is open source.)

This doesn't work in qpdf using the newest 0.38.0 poppler

Actually, we can read XFA, we just can't save XFA.

I guess I should change the title of this again to actually mirror the poppler bug (Poppler doesn't render PDFs that check Adobe Reader is there using JavaScript). Now, saving an XFA form is another bug. As I'm the guy who changed the title the last time, this confusion was my fault.
