The Brava and Daeja viewers provide similar page access functionality, in which the viewer may be able to display the first page of a document before the entire document has been downloaded from the server. The page serving functionality built into ACS and BOCS using page aware plug-ins. ACS and BOCS can split a multi-page file into individual pages and serve them back to the viewer if the viewer requests it (only available for PDF and TIFF).
The page modifications functionality built into DIS and TaskSpace is used for document merging and page modifications such as deleting, inserting, splitting, and reordering pages in a multiple page document.
