AtomSphere does not currently support PDF conversion natively, but you may be able to find a PDF utility for Java and use custom scripting to convert documents into binary PDF data.


Two popular PDF libraries to consider are Apache PDFBox and iText. This stackoverflow post compares some of PDF libraries available.


Add the jar file to the ../<atom root>/userlib/script folder (create the folder if it does not exist) and restart the atom. Develop a custom script in Groovy within a Data Process Custom Scripting shape to invoke the PDF library and perform the necessary conversion steps.


Note this approach is currently only available for local atoms and molecules, not the Dell Boomi Atom Clouds.
