Not that I've noticed. You'll probably still have to use a third-party library.

I've used iText, in the past, but I don't know if it's the best option, nowadays.

Thank you. We were looking into that product, it involves the cost though. But I guess it will be the best bet.

It looks like version 2.1.7 for Java might have a looser license than subsequent versions, when it comes to use in a commercial product, but I'm not 100% sure.
