Bruno,

Is there a way to create a fillable PDF document using iText. Or do you need to purchase Acrobat to create the document?

Thanks,
Joel Maxson

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Yes, that's possible. Check the relevant section of the iText tutorial for some examples.

Can I then use the PDF created to submit data to a server?
