Toolkit for creating and manipulating PDF documents

Etymon PJ/PJX is a developer toolkit for parsing, modifying, and creating PDF documents. The main part of the toolkit is a Java class library that provides software developers with an object representation of a PDF document that can read, parse, modify, or extract data from exisiting PDF files, as well as creating new ones. PDF is normally used in the final stage of document preparation, but it is also useful in the following situations:

  • Use an existing document as a starting point for PDF generation
  • Extract information about documents for a catalog
  • Stamp a header or other text onto pages of a document
  • Combine pages from various sources into a single document
  • Overlay text onto a form based on user input
  • Extract graphical elements from a document
