1 - iText

iText consists of several jars.

The main iText release contains:

  • itextpdf-x.y.z.jar: the core library
  • itext-xtra-x.y.z.jar: extra functionality (PDF 2!)
  • itext-pdfa-x.y.z.jar: PDF/A-related functionality

This project is hosted on http://sourceforge.net/projects/itext/ You can find the latest release here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/itext/files/iText/

In some cases, you'll need extra jars. These jars are bundled in a zip file here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/itext/files/extrajars/

For XML (and HTML) functionality, you need this jar:

  • xmlworker-x.y.z.jar

This project is hosted on http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmlworker/

Finally, we also have a tool that can help you debug PDFs:

  • itext-rups-x.y.z.jar

This project is hosted on http://sourceforge.net/projects/itextrups/
