>From what I remember of the subject, which it's quite a while since I
looked at it, you can't do this with any of the well-known FO
processors, the only chance I would think you would have is with Adobe's
and then using an extension function of course. 
Also From what I remember you can't create Objects but I think you might
be able to Get objects. 
At any rate scriptable PDFS, which I personally think has to be one of
the dumbest ideas in the history of programming not created by me, are
implemented using a form of ecmascript, not per se the jscript of IE, 

-here's a short description of the scripting from a presentation at on 'interactive documents':

Complete JavaScript/ECMAScript 1.5 implementation based on the Netscape
"SpiderMonkey" library.
-Supports all "core" objects & methods
-Acrobat-specific DOM
.Does NOT include any "browser" DOM!
-Runs in a "sandbox"
.No access to file system, system configuration or Network

here's the original presentation:

it seems pdfsages has some tools for working with interactive pdfs,
might help you out.
