I have just recently downloaded Acrobat DC Pro because I was told it came with the SDK and the SDk could handle the task I was looking to perform. The bottom line is I am trying to index a PDF file without opening it in Adobe acrobat. I have spent the better part of the week researching this and I'm struggling to make a lot of progress, so I have a few questions.

Can someone point me to some examples of using the SDK to index a PDF file.  I'm not a javascript or C# developer but have enough programming experience to figure it out once I get started.

Best suggested way to accomplish my task? Javascript? C#? Plugins? or Windows Interapplication communications?

Lastly? It only looks like I can create a full text catalog (pdx) on the PDF file through the SDK - is that correct? Why did adobe change to have embedded indexes diabled by default?

Sorry for the ramblings but any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks ,Joe

Hi Bernd, thanks for the reply. I have already downloaded the documentation and started to go through it but being new to the acrobat environment I was feeling a little overwhelmed and looking for some advice on a good starting point.  Thanks again for replying.  Joe
