iText’s PDF software has long been an essential part of many document management workflows. PDF is the dominant digital document format due to its flexibility, portability, and openness, and has seen widespread adoption across diverse domains. The iText PDF library enables the generation and manipulation of PDF documents on the back-end. So even if you’ve not personally used our software, you’ve almost certainly experienced iText-generated PDFs, such as bank statements or airline boarding passes.
For years, developers have been using a monolithic architecture for their applications: they would deploy an application on a single server, on-premise or in the cloud.

However, fundamentally the idea is still the same: an application is deployed as a single, indivisible unit.
