Subject Re: [DISCUSS] PDFBox proposal
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2007 10:37:57 GMT
Hi folks,

for creating PDF you have many options and I'm not sure if creating PDF 
using a programmatic API is the best appraoch. But where PDFBox really 
shines is the fact that you can extract the textual content of a PDF 
document thereby making it accessible for fulltext search within the 
WIKI. Therefore I used a combination of PDFBox and iText for a PDF 
handling service ....
