PDFbox

Can't find much on PDFbox on the wiki or in the forums. I see PDFbox is capable of some useful stuff - merging pdf's and encrypting them.

I'd like to be able to access this from webscripts, and/or from workflows, ie via javascript.

The sort of things I have in mind - running a 'publish' action that converts a .doc to pdf, creates a front sheet pdf from metadata (using the forge project for xsl-fo) merges the two and then encrypts the pdf to protect against copying / printing.

Are pdfbox functions exposed via the javascript api? If not, what would be the easiest way to do this? (given I'm happy with scripting, but am not into compiling alfresco…)

thanks
James
