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.


"bfopdf.jar" jar is now compiled for Java 5.0 or later; customers running Java 1.4 now need to use the "bfopdf-14.jar" instead, which is a backported version of the main jar. This change allows benefiting from the improvements to Java, while still continuing to support customers using Java 1.4. Fixes to setOutputProfile, which was sometimes not failing when it should have. This could result in profiles being applied incorrectly, so documents that should have failed when being converted to PDF/A were succeeding.
