jPDFWriter is a Java class library to create PDF documents directly from Java programs without having to install any third party drivers or software. It emulates the standard Java classes to print and draw graphics to reduce the learning curve when using the library and reuse existing code. It can create PDF files in two ways: PDF files can be created directly using jPDFWriter's very simple API (simply create a PDFDocument object, create as many PDFPage objects as necessary, draw strings, graphics, or any other elements supported by Graphics2D to the pages, and save the document), or jPDFWriter can extend the standard Java PrinterJob to create PDF files as though printing to a physical printer. This allows reuse of existing printing code and lets an application decide, at runtime, whether to send the output to a printer or to a PDF file. PDF files can be saved to files on a disk, written to a java.io.OutputStream, or written directly to a javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream to show in a browser when working within a J2EE application server. jPDFWriter is written entirely in Java, so application portability and operating system independence are not compromised.
jPDFProcess is a Java library to work with PDF documents which can be used to deliver customized PDF content to your users or to process and manipulate incoming PDF content. The library has a simple interface to work with PDF documents and is designed to be integrated easily and seamlessly into your PDF document workflow. jPDFProcess provides the functionality found in many other Qoppa Software libraries, including printing, setting permissions and security, creating and assembling documents, digital signing, working with form fields, extracting text, and more. It can work with PDF documents from files, URLs, and input streams, and can save documents to files and output streams, so it can serve documents from a J2EE application directly to a client browser without any temporary files. jPDFProcess is platform-independent, and can be used in any environment which supports Java.
jPDFViewer is a Java bean which embeds a PDF viewer in your Java applications and applets. It can read, display, and print PDF files, fill interactive PDF forms (acroforms, xfa forms), view all markup annotations, validate and display digital signatures, and perform text search, selection, and highlighting. It provides easy navigation with different views: thumbnails, bookmarks, annotations, etc. It has a customizable toolbar and user interface. It supports all image types, including JBIG2 and JPEG 2000, and all PDF font types (Types 0-3, OpenType, TrueType). It supports Acrobat PDF format 1.7, including layers, all PDF color spaces, including pattern and separation, and file attachments. There's no need to install or configure additional drivers or software when deploying.
