i want to know if there is any better library available(open source / less cost), than "i-text" , As i have been using this library for some time and found that the object creation on using this library is relatively high ... please any one let me know of a better/optimal library available that can be used for viewing the PDF, the feature that is required is that the User viewing the PDF should not be able to save the PDF on his local machine , but can only print the PDF .

Hence i need to have library to this setting on the server side. I hope now my query is pretty clear . !! thanx & regards
I used to work for a company having applet based digital paper document viewer. Actually it performed quite well anfortunately the company gave up in favor of Adobe. So currently I use Acrobat with plug-in which connects to my servlet and provides requested functionality as applying security, print out limitation and so on.
