CSC about iText PDF

We chose the iText library because it was the only solution that allowed easy integration into our open standards architecture, could flatten dynamic forms based on XML data, and offer a high-fidelity solution to wrap structured data around scanned PDF.

Chris MacKenzie is amazed iText's level of sophistication, reliability and functionality

I have been a big proponent of iText since somewhere around 2005. Over the course of that time, I have contributed code to iText, evangelized its benefits to numerous customers, and even get my daily does of humor when Paulo tells some newbie that 'there is no emergency and do not use caps'. Seriously, I have worked with PDF technologies for a decade, written numerous Acrobat plugins, know the Acrobat API almost by heart, and am always amazed at the level of sophistication, reliability and functionality that the iText project continues to deliver. Kudos to Bruno, Paulo, et al. Thanks.
