The New v15.0 SDK Has Sped Up the Initiating Scan Jobs Process and Adds Concurrent Processing for Various Upload Methods

June 27, 2019 – Dynamsoft™ has introduced version 15 of its Dynamic Web TWAIN™ document scanning software development kit (SDK) which now has a faster way to initiate scan jobs and more equal functionalities for Windows and macOS editions. The SDK is widely used to expedite adding an online document scanner component to document management applications running in popular Internet browsers.

The scan component has a newly added method to start a scan. It accepts a JSON object that specifies all the scan parameters. This now makes it simpler and even faster to initiate a scan job. Developers can also specify how they want the scanned data to be processed by adding extra output parameters in the same JSON object.

The new SDK also has improved overall performance by allowing two time-consuming operations to occur concurrently. This is for the methods ConvertToBlob, ConvertToBase64, GenerateURLForUploadedData and a few HTTP upload methods. In addition, there is now a new libDynamicImg.dylib file in the macOS edition. This provides functionalities equal to those in the file DynamicImage.dll on Windows edition. Essentially, this file offers better image encoding and decoding for the macOS edition. Finally, for the Windows edition, the 64bit service has been made the default option on 64bit machines.

Users can scan documents from TWAIN, SANE, and ICA-compatible scanners using a variety of browsers.

About Dynamic Web TWAIN

Dynamic Web TWAIN provides cross-browser and cross-platform document scanning support. Users can scan documents from TWAIN, SANE and ICA-compatible scanners using a variety of browsers: Chrome®, Firefox®, Edge®, Internet Explorer® (IE), or Safari®. Users can also edit captured documents and save the images in various file formats – JPEG, TIFF, PDF, and more – and transfer and store them across varying protocols, local or remote file systems, databases and document repositories.

Dynamic Web TWAIN provides programmers with simple built-in interfaces to access local imaging devices from web pages, so users can capture documents as image files online from Windows, macOS®, or Linux®. Developers need only write a handful of lines of JavaScript code to enable cross-browser document scanning, uploading, editing and processing. It saves on costs by eliminating months of work understanding related standards and coding from scratch to create scanning and image capture functions. Development teams also realize long-term time and cost savings with better application robustness, faster time to market, and technical support.
