Hi AFAIK its still only /A-1a and /A-1b. 


I must admit the two people I know who know about the differences between /A-1 /A-2 and /A-3

see little point in /A-2. And don't really see /A-3 as an improvement at all and mostly think that

/A-3 breaks the PDF mould.


I honestly I do not see how you would go about embeding alternative document formats in

a consistant way using Jasper any how.

I must admit I am not even sure if Adobe Distiller/LiveCycle Generator/Server supports /A-3 fully

I use JasperReports to create serveral types of documents. One of these documents is an invoice. In germany there is a new specification for transfering invoices, it's called "ZUGFeRD". In these specification it there has to be an xml-file embedded in an PDF/A-3 File.

Does anyone else see a chance to generate a PDF/A-3 document from an jasperreport?

I have to second the request for PDF/A-2. In order to comply to a specification important to our work, we would have good use for this. For us, this is really not a matter of 'because we can', but of 'because we have to'. Are there any chances to see this supported in the near future?

Darf man fragen wie der aktuelle Stand bei dir ist bzgl. ZUGFeRD? Wir nutzen auch iReport zum erstellen der PDFs. Da wir diese zukünftig auch als ZUGFeRD-Rechnung ausgeben wollen, suchen wir aktuell nach einer Lösung. Vielleicht kann man sich mal austauschen...

Any progress regarding support for PDF/A-2 in 2022? I have looked in the PdfaConformanceEnum here: https://sourceforge.net/p/jasperreports/code/ci/master/tree/jasperreports/src/net/sf/jasperreports/export/type/PdfaConformanceEnum.java and could only see Support for PDF/A-1a and 1b, which considering the timespan since the integration of the support for PDF/A-1 (2011), let me think that there is definitely no plans for supporting PDF/A-2 and PDF/A-3 as well. Any update/relevant info is welcomed.
