As we know iText is not a open source now, can anyone tell me what is the best alternate for iText to merge pdf through Java

iText 2 (which is licensed under the LGPL) should be able to do this. Alternatively -if merging PDFs is all you need to do- check out PDFBox.

Search for "merge" on the PDFBox home page.
