ICEsoft, creator of the ICEfaces JSF-Ajax framework, today unveiled a new addition to its open source product portfolio. ICEpdf, ICEsoft's Java PDF library and engine, is now available under the MPL open source license.
ICEpdf is a lightweight open source Java PDF rendering library that can be integrated within any Java-based client application or deployed on a server in headless mode as a PDF servlet (JSP or JSF). ICEpdf provides PDF viewing and navigation as well as PDF content conversion and extraction without having to deal with Java-to-native integration issues.
"For the last several years, ICEpdf has evolved as an extremely popular solution for enterprises requiring reliable Java-based PDF technology for serverside rendering or integration within Java client applications. We are excited about the prospects of introducing this remarkable product to the broader community of open source Java developers," said Brian McKinney, CEO of ICEsoft.
In support of the release of ICEpdf, ICEsoft is also launching a new community website, www.icepdf.org. The site provides forum support for community users, demo’s, as well as user documentation and other product related information.
