Description: iText Core provides a framework for dynamic Portable Document Format (PDF) document generation and manipulation. This technology allows the user to assemble, expand, extract, split and interact with any PDF file. iText Core can integrate with a number of products, including Eclipse Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT), and Jasper Reports.

Please note iText Core is not a PDF viewer; iText Core cannot convert PDF to an image, nor can iText Core be used to print a PDF. Instead, it provides access to the objects that form a PDF document and to the content stream of each page.

This technology is available in three editions, iText Core - Open Source AGPL License (free and open-source), iText Core - Subscription License Volume, and iText Core - Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Distribution License. This entry covers all three editions.

This technology does not utilize a database to store data.
