The Big Faceless PDF Library is a Java class library for creating PDF documents. The Extended Edition offers the ability to create and edit AcroForms, PDF's answer to the HTML form. Like HTML forms, PDF forms can contain text boxes, radio buttons, and can call JavaScript functions. The Extended Edition also includes a PDF reader for importing and editing, along with FDF support, verification for digital signatures and text extraction. Both variations offer full Unicode support, encryption, embedded TrueType and Type1 fonts, barcodes, hyperlinks, and spot and calibrated color.


This release verifies the API against Java 7 and fixes some Java 1.4 compatibility issues. JBIG2 classes from JPedal are now included and have been optimized. There's no longer any need to use "jbig2dec" or include the "jbig2.jar" in your classpath. There are speed improvements for text extraction and PDF creation. There are improvements to XFDF reading and writing. Rendering bitmap images with a Blend Mode is now working. PropertyChangeEvent support has been added to PDFPage and PDF classes.
