Abstract This thesis describes an application that allows users to write annotations to PDF documents through a web based interface. The primary features include opportunity to open available documents, view annotations by other users and write comments on these. The application is realized by means of various web based technologies and interoperability between these. During the development our primary focus will be on the interoperability between the individual units of the application. We will be analyzing various technologies and platforms in order to achieve maximum functionality and efficiency in each of the components that constitute the system. Each component is designed individually using selected technologies. We complete the application by setting up communication between the units. Finally the solution is implemented on a web server in order to make it accessible from any computer with access to the internet. The resulting application PDF Annotator can be accessed at
