jPDFNotes – Java PDF Annotator / Form Filler Component

Display PDF documents and interactive PDF forms and allow your users to annotate the documents and fill the forms with jPDFNotes.

jPDFNotes is built on Qoppa’s proprietary PDF technology, it does not require any client installation or third party programs, it is a self contained Java component that can be deployed in a Java application or a web application as a Java Webstart application. Since it is written in Java, it allows your application to remain platform independent and run on Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix.

jPDFNotes can load documents from files on a local or network drive, from a URL and from Java input streams for documents that are generated runtime or come from other sources, such as a database. After editing documents, the library can save them to a local file or the host application can override the save function to save the file to any location locally or to a web server.
