itext by itext Development Team is an ideal library for developers looking to enhance web- and other applications with dynamic PDF document generation and/or manipulation.
iText 5.0.2 is not an end-user tool.
Typically it won't be used it on Desktop applications as a person would use Acrobat or any other pdf application.
Rather, the developer will build iText [itext5.0.2.exe] into his own applications so that he can automate the PDF creation and manipulation process.
Most important functions of iText - 0MB:
• Serve PDF to a browser
• Generate dynamic documents from XML files or databases.
• Use PDF's many interactive feature.
• Add bookmarks, page numbers, watermarks, etc.
• Split, concatenate, and manipulate PDF pages.
• Automate filling out of PDF forms.
• Add digital signatures to a PDF file.
• Java Development Kit (JDK) 1. 5 or higher
• The BouncyCastle: bcprov, bcmail, and bctsp
News in the current iText 5.0.2 version:
• EncryptionRevision 3 and 4 only requires the first key length bytes to be hashed 50 times (fix of a problem reported by the people of pdfforge).
• Fixed height didn't work correctly in PdfPCell.
• CFFFontSubset: avoiding a NullPointerException
• XfaForm: skipping white space
• BaseFont: Not all the xobjects have resources and that was causing a NullPointerException.
• Java 5 code simplifications in PdfCopy and PdfContentByte
• PdfPTable: New method to reset the number of columns.
• Added support for QR barcode. The code is based in ZXing (Apache license).
• PdfPTable: Fix for row span above bug (timmo3). See itextsharp bug #2979944.
• HTML Markup: Support for absolute-size (CSS).
• AcroFields: introduction of the class FieldPosition to make the code more readable.
• CMapAwareDocumentFont: Tweaks to make processing quasi-invalid PDF files more robust
• PdfContentReaderTool: null pointer handling, plus a few well placed flush calls
• PdfContentReaderTool: Show details on resource entries
• PdfContentStreamProcessor: Adjustment so embedded images don't cause parsing problems and improvements to EI detection
• LocationTextExtractionStrategy: Fixed anti-parallel algorithm, plus accounting for negative inter-character offsets. Change to text extraction strategy that builds out the text model first, then computes concatenation requirements.
• Adjustments to linesegment implementation; optimalization of changes made by Bruno to text extraction; for example: introduction of the class MarkedContentInfo.
• Major refactoring of interface to text extraction functionality: for instance introduction of class PdfReaderContentParser
• PdfImage: Provide a "nice" resource name when a null image name is passed to us.
• Image: avoiding possible null pointer exception
• AcroFields: Making deprecated public variables protected
• PdfGState: new method setRenderingIntent()
• PdfGraphics2D: performance improvement, contributed by Peter Harvey.
• PdfContentReaderTool: avoiding possible NullPointerException
• PdfName: added new name OC related constants for Not, Or, FG, Ind, and so on.
• New class PdfVisibilityExpression: Support for visibility expressions in OC membership dictionaries.
• Optional content usage: support for PageElement and User
• New class TaggedPdfReaderTool: tool that is able to convert a Tagged PDF into an XML file.
• New class TextMarginFinder: strategy to find the boundaries of text
• Introduced MarkedContent info in the TextRenderInfo
• Introduced a PdfImageObject for the ImageRenderInfo
• Replacing getStartPoint and getEndPoint with getLineSegment.
• PdfDictionary: new method clear()
• PdfCollection: Collections can also have a custom view.
• PdfAnnotation: suggestion by Eric de Beus to add a method to create Polygon/Polyline annotations. As the two methods suggested by Eric were identical except for one line, I merged them into one method.
• BaseFont: TrueTypeFont. WindowsMetrics. usWeightClass and usWidthClass and made both accessible via TrueTypeFont. getFontDescriptor() (posted to the mailing list by Thimo Seitz 14/07/2009 14:12)
• Tabs and justified alignment don't mix. Not really a bug fix, but at least the line doesn't jump out of the text column anymore.
• FDF files are now generated as version 1. 4 (instead of 1. 2)
