Hi All,

Till now i was using iText for generating PDF file in my project. Now i have come to know that there is some license issue with using iText in project. Now i am looking for some other open source library on the lines of iText which supports the feature of writing a PDF file.

Any pointer will be very helpful.


Regards,
Gaurav

Presumably you're referring to the fact that iText 5 uses the GNU Affero license. You can get around that by using iText 2 (which uses the GNU Lesser GPL license).
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
