Dear PDFBox authors and contributors,


Sincerely thank you very much for your efforts for this library. PDFBox
provides us the fundamental base platform for manipulating PDF files. Thanks
to it in our project we use it for working with existing PDF/A documents:

.         PDF/A compliance verification;

.         Adding/reading/validating XMP metadata;

.         Signing, time-stamping, validation data inclusion for long term
preservation (according to PAdES parts 3 and 4) and signature verification.


Though some of these features are not natively available in PDFBox, but
thanks to its architecture we could extend it and implement most of this
functionality (metadata and signing related mostly). Most difficult part for
us is PDF/A compliance validation. We based our solution on PDFBox preflight
implementation, but it supports only PDF/A-1. Looking forward to
verification support for later PDF/A parts.


With best regards,

Petras Petkus

Dear PDFBox users,


we'd love to hear from you how you are using PDFBox in your PDF
applications. Do you use it for rendering, merging, creation . - what is the
main application? 


As we are planning for PDFBox 2.0 there are already a lot of ideas what
could be done in that release. Your input will help us to better understand
where we could put our focus. 


Please understand that we will take your input seriously but as this is a
volunteers effort we can not commit to a certain functionality. And if you'd
like to help you're always welcome to do so.


Thanks a lot for your feedback!


Maruan Sahyoun
