pdfSweep code

// set input and output file
String input = "AliceInWonderland.pdf";
String output = "AliceInWonderland_redacted.pdf";
 
// define a strategy
// a Composite strategy acts as a collection of other strategies
CompositeLocationExtractionStrategy strategy = new CompositeLocationExtractionStrategy();          
// redact all occurences of the word 'Alice' with a pink marker
strategy.add(new PatternLocationExtractionStrategy("Alice").setRedactionColor(Color.PINK));                                       
// redact all occurences of 'Rabbit' and 'White Rabbit' (with some variations on case) with a gray marker
strategy.add(new PatternLocationExtractionStrategy("((w|W)hite (r|R)abbit)|( rabbit)|(Rabbit)").setRedactionColor(Color.GRAY));
