PDFreactor is a formatting processor for converting XML and XHTML or HTML to PDF. It uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to define page layout and styles. It allows you to dynamically generate PDF documents such as invoices, delivery notes, shipping documents, or print versions of Web content on-the-fly. Vector graphics (SVG), barcodes, XSLT, and CMYK colors are supported. All common J2EE application servers are supported. Complete .NET and PHP APIs are included. Direct integration into automatic build processes using Apache Ant is also possible.


The new features include support for TIFF images, including support for CMYK, TIFF, and SVG in IMG tags, background, and generated content. The image quality was improved by direct embedding of images without JPEG recompression. Layout of tables spanning multiple pages, layout of nested tables, positioning of floats across page breaks, the handling of the @page:first selector, and the page counter for merged documents were improved. Support for the bottom property of absolutely positioned elements was fixed.
