How to add a border to a paragraph?

I've created a Paragraph using iText. Now I have to add a border to this paragraph, not to the whole document. How to do this?

Please take a look at the BorderForParagraph and BorderForParagraph2 examples. They show how to add a border for a paragraph by extending ParagraphRenderer and overriding the drawBorder() method.

But iText 7 offers a much more easier way to achieve what you want:

paragraph.setBorder(new SolidBorder(1));

Here it is!
