PDFs aren't really meant for changing after they've been created. Adding text, in particular, isn't something that's easy, or possible at all, given libraries such as iText.

Using iText (or other libraries such as PDFBox) you can append pages to a PDF, though. So if the new content is all on its own page in a second PDF, you can append that to the first file.

Thanks Ulf. I thought appending is possible in a same page by using ITEXT. Thanks for clarifying me.
