Open Source Java PDF Generation and Renderer

For PDF generation, iText is a good choice.

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…

For PDF rendering, PDF Renderer can be used.

The PDF Renderer is just what the name implies: an open source, all Java library which renders PDF documents to the screen using Java2D. Typically this means drawing into a Swing panel, but it could also draw to other Graphics2D implementations.
