HTML to PDF with pdfHTML
See the recording our webinar done on March 22nd for an in depth intro with some of iText's developers. Introduction pdfHTML is an iText 7 add-on that will replace our previous XML Worker, from iText 5. This add-on gives you the ability to transform HTML and CSS content into a PDF document. In the iText 5 XML Worker the number of tags and CSS declarations supported were limited to a subset of most the frequently used tags and properties for PDF. There was no support for video, sound, control and animations etc. This focus was as much a choice as it...
GIDS 2017: The Great Indian Developer Summit

pdfXFA flatten dynamic forms
pdfXFA is the successor to XFA Worker. It allows you to process and finalize dynamic forms by automating form filling and later flattening for easy use and security. pdfXFA offers all of the same functionality as XFA Worker, but also offers a convenient API. To get started with pdfXFA, read on! Load your License Key Before we begin we'll need to load the license file. This is done using our license key library. Make sure to use version 2 and higher. These version are meant to be used in tandem with iText 7 products, while versions 1.x.y are meant to be used with iText 5. LicenseKey....
The PDF Days Conference is quickly approaching, held in Berlin May 15-16. At the conference, the PDF Association will host talks about PDF Specification updates and reveal some seriously big news. Although, we don't know everything, we do know that the big reveal for this year's PDF Days will be BIG. The super secret project is code named "next-generation PDF”. Easily the most exciting (and radical!) development in PDF technology for years, next-generation PDF marries core PDF capabilities to the flexibility of web technologies. The development of this technology is ongoing, and actively supported by many members of the PDF Association, including iText. The real name, purpose and status of “next-generation PDF” will be revealed in the initial Keynote session and subsequent dedicated track at PDF Days 2017

Tags: digital signatures
Last week there was a huge buzz surrounding SHA-1. The hashing algorithm has been deemed unsafe for many years, but is still used in outdated software for digital signatures. Recently a team of researchers was able to break SHA-1, proving definitively that the algorithim should be replaced . The attack was orchestrated on a PDF file that contained an image, which they exploited to generate a collision. A collision can be quite scary as it allows an attacker to generate two files that have the same digest value. If a victim was to sign one of these files using SHA-1, the signed digest would be...

A small country with big ideas, Belgium is the birthplace of the saxophone, the Mercator projection and the combustion engine, but key contributions to the digital space such as Drupal, the jpeg format, and even the World Wide Web have Belgian origins. And let's not forget iText: we have Belgian roots too. That's why iText is one of the sponsors of the Belgian mission to South by Southwest (SXSW) organized by startups.be and Morning Glory , co-sponsored by Jack ,...

Last week, we created a poll on Twitter , asking you which platform you prefer: The Java platform, The .NET platform, or Another platform These were the results: It seems that the Java platform is the most popular among developers who follow us on Twitter: half of them prefer the Java platform. Looking at the questions posted on StackOverflow, I would have guessed that the numbers would be more in balance, because it feels as if there are about as many questions about iText for Java as there are as about iText for C#. Maybe we...
