Creating plugin for Adobe Acrobat

Hello, 

I tried many ways before posting here about creating a plugin for Adobe Acrobat. We have large set of users who are using Adobe Acrobat, my company built lot of services and one of it is compliance API. We like to check the compliance and sentiment analysis when someone is creating a PDF document and make sure the document is good and clean. So I am exploring options to trigger a panel or such to call backend API's and pass the selected text to the API and show results. Is there any possibility to extend Adobe Acrobat to support this ask? If you have any other alternatives or ideas please help! 

thanks

Absolutely you can do this with a plug-in.

If compliance means sending off some text to a server script, then this could also be done with a much simpler JavaScript tool.

Here's the reference entry for the NET.HTTP object in the JS model.

I use this object frequently, so I wrote a tool to help me test out web access. It's available to members of www.pdfscripting.com

Important question: when would you do the compliance test? How do you make the PDF?

For example, in Word you can use Create Adobe PDF. A PDF is made. But it may not be opened in Acrobat. So there is no plug-in.
