iText Software Corp. (California, USA) and 1T3XT BVBA (Ghent, Belgium) are companies with a dream.
Our mission is to:
Enable a paperless world,
pushing the limits of digital document interactivity!
We want to achieve this mission by trying to meet the following goals:
We aim to offer the best documented, best performing and most feature rich Open Source PDF engine.
- Open Source
- Our product has been available on the popular F/OSS repository SourceForge since 2000. We have built a large community of users and developers, resulting in numerous code contributions.
- Best documented
- No other PDF library is better documented. A first book about iText was published in 2007 by Manning Publications Co. The second edition of iText in Action is a complete rewrite, based on the feedback of thousands of readers.
- Best performing
- Serious efforts are done to be the best performing PDF library. iText can deal with high volumes of documents. Because it has been around for so long, it has become the most reliable PDF library on the market.
- Most feature rich
- The developers of iText almost know the PDF reference by heart, and they have created a very generic framework that allows them to add features whenever new PDF functionality is released by Adobe, or by any other contributor to the PDF standard.
