The JagPDF library adds PDF generation capability to your application.

JagPDF can be used in a variety of scenarios, ranging from server applications like on-demand document generation or high-volume document processing, to desktop applications requiring output to PDF.

The library is able to produce various document types. You can create invoices, reports, complex vector drawings, textual documents, etc. The library provides metrics for fonts and images which allows advanced text formatting. Have a look at samples at http://jagpdf.org/samples.htm.

Document organization

This handbook is divided into three main parts:

  • The Installation section describes how to install JagPDF.
  • The User's Guide provides a JagPDF functionality walk-through.
  • The Reference section contains documentation of the JagPDF API for each language.

Knowledge of basic computer graphics and typography concepts is assumed.


The PDF format is described in the PDF Reference which is publicly available at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/pdf/pdf_reference.html. It is recommended to keep that document handy as this document refers to it whenever a PDF concept needs to be introduced or specified.

You can post JagPDF related questions to the JagPDF mailing list. See JagPDF homepage for support details.
