+To support XMP metadata the xmpbox component is needed.
+### Include Dependencies using Maven
+To add the pdfbox, fontbox, xmpbox and commons-logging jars to your application, the easiest
thing is to declare the Maven dependency shown below. This gives you the main pdfbox library
directly and the other required jars as transitive dependencies.

+      <groupId>org.apache.pdfbox</groupId>

+Set the version field to the latest stable PDFBox version.
 ## Optional components
 PDFBox does not ship with all features enabled. Third party components are necessary to get
full support for certain functionality.

build tool like
