Thanks for your contribution intention. But we found iText uses the AGPL
license: http://itextpdf.com/terms-of-use/index.php
So it would be difficult to use that in an Apache 2.0 licensed project.

Do you have plan to supply a version using PDFBox pr FOP? Both of them will
be OK for Apache 2.0 license.
And as far as I know, PDFBox may be easier. Its API is similar with iText.

Whatever, thank you for your eager contribution intention!
