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.


Form Fields will now be formatted if possible. Basic formatting is supported, and some JavaScript will work if Java 1.6 or Mozilla Rhino are available. Improvements to PKCS#7 parsing mean that verifying signatures should now work with any JCE provder, including IAIK and the default Sun provider. The text wrapping algorithm when track kerning is set has been fixed. Rendering of some types of Masked images has been fixed.
