iText PDF Engine

iText 7 Core

iText 7 Core is the bedrock of iText 7. It lets you assemble, expand, extract, split and interact with any PDF file. It is compliant with most ISO PDF standards as well as standards for digital signatures (PAdES) It allows you to spend your time more productively by automating routine documentation and archiving tasks. Your documents can be read by any machine, at any time, no matter the original input formats, and will stay legible for a very long time. iText 7 Core further serves as the platform that can be expanded with add-ons for specific value-added PDF tasks. Look below for the add-ons that are available - more will be added as iText 7 continues to grow and evolve.

iText 7 Community

iText 7 Community is the same as iText 7 Core in terms of functionalities, but can be used only with the AGPL license, meaning users must disclose their own source code in iText projects and must disclose any modifications they make. In addition, the iText 7 add-ons are not available for the Community version, and the AGPL license does not come with support from our development teams.
