Installation

iText 7 pdfXFA is available on the iText Artifactory server. Here you can also find the license key library and iText 7 Core - you require an additional license key.

You can add this server as an additional Maven repository in the repositories section of your pom.xml or settings.xml, as described in the Maven documentation. Maven will then automatically query this repository for the add-on .jar files.

You can also browse the iText Artifactory server and download jars manually.
