PDF to JPEG - microservice

Question asked by amsc on Jun 7, 2018

I’m currently using the MBS plugin to convert PDF documents to JPEG images.  This is working quite well, but our operations wants this process shifted to a PSOS script.  Currently, the way I’m doing it is tied to a Mac; our server is on FM Cloud, so the technique I’m using won’t work on the server.  The licensing cost for DynaPDF doesn’t make sense for our limited use (we really only want to convert the documents to JPEGs). 


I’m thinking of building a microservice to accomplish this.  There seem to be a few java based techniques out there, but my knowledge of java is still quite limited.  Does anyone have any suggestions to do this?  Is there a native FM way to do this?  My PDFs are multi page documents, so I need to be able to print each page to a separate jpeg file. 


fmpdude, I know you specialize in microservices; do you have any suggestions?
