Hi Toni,

well, not directly. What you could do is to create a PDF from SVG using
Apache Batik [1][2] or Apache FOP [3][4] and then import the PDF into
your own PDFBox-made PDF document, either by importing the PDF as a page

[1] http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/using/transcoder.html
[2] http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6875807/convert-svg-to-pdf
[3] http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/
[4] By putting a reference to the SVG into a little XSL-FO wrapper. FOP
also allows conversion from SVG to PDF on the command-line using "fop
-imagein myimage.svg -pdf out.pdf".
