Using Infoprint to covert spoolfiles into PDF documents

I am using Infoprint to covert spoolfiles into PDF documents. I 'm storing all PDF documents under an IFS directory....

I need help to view the PDF documents in the iSeries applications. Is it possible to use an Acrobat reader from the iSeries applications to display PDF documents?

If you want to view the PDF file on the emulation screen it will be impossible since the emulation is capable of displaying text only (you may use a tool to convert PDF to text, but it is NOT what you want).

Another option:

* Map network dirve to NetServer IFS from the PC (i.e G)

* When a user presses the required key in the emulation, use STRPCCMD to run Acrobat Reader on the PC -- with the required file name as parameter.
