Why not create a PDF of your own?

My first project at IFS was about applying PDF/A standards to IFS reports. This project involved a conversion of PDF version. For that I needed a some kind of Java library which will provide me a set of functionality to perform a conversion.

While searching for few hours I found this wonderful Java library called iText. It has both Java and C# .NET versions.

You can use iText to:
  • Serve PDF to a browser
  • Generate dynamic documents from XML files or databases
  • Use PDF's many interactive features
  • 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
  • and much more...

You can download iText binaries and source files from here.
 iText API from here.
An excellent tutorial on iText can be founded in here.

Create a small PDF file and enjoy seen it's working, if you like to do more work using this that would make my effort even more success.
