Enrich your applications with iText

Our OEM licensing allows you to embed the iText library into applications that cannot be unbundled. End users will only get to use iText functionalities within your application and don’t get a full iText license. Our OEM requires updates and support for your first year of usage. Other benefits include:

  • Professional support from iText developers

  • Discounts available for quantity purchases

  • Indemnification and legal warranties

OEM for server products

Our OEM server license option lets you embed iText functionality in your server applications so they can offer sophisticated PDF-capabilities. Pricing is based on the number of servers deployed. Minimum volume commitments apply.

  • One license per server, virtual machine or node installation, independent of number of end-users

  • One-time fee, perpetual license

  • Unlimited number of PDF's, unlimited distribution time

Usage example: You create and distribute an ECM product that can create documents for archival. Your previous formats could not guarantee preservation, so you want to incorporate iText’s PDF/A feature with some content structure. Your clients now receive your closed-source ECM product with its iText features in the backend.

OEM for client products

Our OEM client license option lets you embed iText functionality in your end-user applications so they can offer sophisticated PDF-capabilities. Pricing is based on the number of end-user applications deployed. Minimum volume commitments apply.

  • One license per desktop, laptop, device, or terminal server user

  • One-time fee, perpetual license

  • Unlimited number of PDF's, unlimited distribution time

Usage example: You have created a desktop CRM plugin to create invoices from the CRM database that you distribute worldwide to clients. The CRM is installed locally on each client desktop machine with the iText library within it.

Available technologies

Unit-based licenses are available for Java, .NET and Android platforms. If you are an independent software vendor distributing a server or client product, please check out our OEM offering. If you have an application for which you can't count the number of instances, then please check out our volume-based license offering.
