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…)
