Provide Unmatched User Experience

GroupDocs.Viewer for Java doesn’t require any installation on the client side. It allows users to view documents from any popular web-browser, including IE8+, Chrome, Opera, FireFox, Safari5+ and their mobile versions. There is no need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader to view PDF documents, for example.

The viewer also comes with a web-interface designed to make it easy to navigate large documents in a browser. You can embed the UI right into web-pages on your website. The UI allows your website visitors to:

  • Turn document pages like slides
  • Preview/navigate pages with thumbnails
  • Fit to width/height/visible or zoom in/out of a document
  • Search for text with the document, select and copy text to the clipboard
  • Download and print documents (these options can be restricted/disabled)

High-Fidelity Fonts Rendering

GroupDocs.Viewer for Java can both, rasterize documents, or convert them to pure HTML, CSS and SVG. When documents are rasterized, the viewer extracts texts and then renders them in a separate layer over the background images. Both modes provide high-fidelity text rendering, so that fonts always look sharp and clear.

Install Instructions:

Before installing the plugin, please be sure to download and install GroupDocs’ Java PDF viewer library itself on your server first.
