We also provide opensource add-ons and tools to complement the core functionality:

  • pdfHTML — allows you to easily convert HTML to PDF or iText objects
  • pdfSweep — a highly efficient PDF tool to merge, split and redact data
  • RUPS — a Java tool that can help you debug PDFs

If you have an idea on how to improve iText 7 Community and you want to submit code, please read our Contribution Guidelines.

iText 7 is dual licensed as AGPL/Commercial software.

AGPL is a free / open source software license.

This doesn't mean the software is gratis!

Buying a license is mandatory as soon as you develop commercial activities distributing the iText software inside your product or deploying it on a network without disclosing the source code of your own applications under the AGPL license. These activities include:

  • offering paid services to customers as an ASP
  • serving PDFs on the fly in the cloud or in a web application
  • shipping iText with a closed source product
