Acrobat is absolutely not for server use. And the Acrobat SDK is for automating Acrobat so it does not help.

Now, what do we have for server use?

* For full programmatic control, Adobe PDF Library. Very awkward to use for PDF creation, you need to understand the PDF specification in detail. However, it is mainly licensed by DataLogics. They add APIs on top to make PDF creation much more straightforward. But HTML conversion is not an option I think.

* For PDF conversion from other formats: LiveCycle PDF Generator.

Yes, there is an update. In addition to this info from 2016 (which is still correct):

Acrobat is absolutely not for server use. And the Acrobat SDK is for automating Acrobat so it does not help.

Now, what do we have for server use?

* For full programmatic control, Adobe PDF Library. Very awkward to use for PDF creation, you need to understand the PDF specification in detail. However, it is mainly licensed by DataLogics. They add APIs on top to make PDF creation much more straightforward. But HTML conversion is not an option I think.

* For PDF conversion from other formats: LiveCycle PDF Generator. [note: product rename to Adobe Experience Manager].

 

New web-based APIs. See "Adobe PDF Services API" on https://www.adobe.io/apis
