iText is a Java PDF library originally dual licensed under MPL/LGPL

Beginning with version 5.0 the developers have moved to the AGPL to improve their ability to sell commercial licenses. I fully respect the developers' wishes and rights. To assist those desiring to stick with the old license I'm making the final MPL/LGPL version more easily available.

I have compiled the project using Java 6. The jars are available under the Downloads tab. Since iText 4.2.0 is compatible with JDK 4+, you may wish to recompile yourself to get JDK 4/5 compatiblity. To do so:

cd iText-4.2.0/src
ant jar
ant jar.rups
ant jar.rtf

Additionally, version 5.0 breaks binary compatibility by changing package names from com.lowagie to com.itextpdf. To offer compatibility with compatibly-licensed code targeting 5.0, I've also produced a jar of 4.2.0 using com.itextpdf. See the Downloads tab. You can find the source in the com.itextpdf branch of the repository. You can compile with the instructions above.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
