  === Background ===
  
- The PDFBox project started in 2002 and was originally written by Ben Litchfield in 2002
and currently lives on SourceForge.  It's initial purpose was to extract text content to be
indexed by the Lucene search engine.  In addition to text extraction it also supports a low
level API for PDF creation and manipulation.

develop specific features in PDFBox but none have continued once their specific needs where
met.
  
  In 2006 discussions began with the FOP team to collaborate on a single PDF library within
the Apache organization.  New projects have expressed interest in advancing the functionality
of PDFBox.

across the world.  The need for a PDF library is strong and is unlikely to change in the near
future.
