Caveat: iText may swallow PDF bookmarks. But Jens Stavnstrup tells us in issue FOP that this doesn’t happen if you use iText’s PDFStamper. Here is. I have a requirement to present a PDF on demand in a web application injecting user specific data. I’m looking at both Apache FOP and iText.

Well, I work for iText as QA Engineer, and flp compared performance and feature sets with several competitors, and we should probably put our findings online, including the full source code of the tests, because it’s actually pretty favourable for us I have the xlsx with the results open right now. If you need different formats, or think you are likely to, FOP will make that job easier. I have been using Iitext for the last month on a major project. What is Apache Fop? For brevity, i have not included the input xml and xslt xsl: With more accuracy I also mean you can control the PDF at the itest level.
From the iText mailing lists it does seem to me that people use both libraries together.
It is very easy to add list and tables to your PDF document by using iText. I have used almost all of them and itextSharp is unbeatable. We will look into iText.
Apache FOP and iText (Open Source Projects forum at Coderanch)
Best thing about iText in Itexy is that its written by the creator of iText himself, so its extensive as well as authoritative. It is free and fairly simple to use. Email required Address never made public. I have to generate a simple PDF document from a little java batch Java 7.

Consider Paul’s rocket mass heater. I have to prepare PDF document with images generated by servlets, so it seems that iText is a good solution.? It is also one itexr the oldest and has huge user added codes and hence has matured over the years.
You can find the details at http: I don’t understand why people always want to compare iText with FOP. How easy is it to write an application with different libraries and how easy is it to maintain the code.
