They are all here:

You're probably somewhat confused, or maybe a beginner. You posted to 
the PDFBox user mailing list, but your question is about boxable, a 
project that uses PDFBox.

The best is to build that project
by getting it with git (URL: https://github.com/dhorions/boxable.git) or 
svn (svn URL: https://github.com/dhorions/boxable) and then run maven. 
If you lucky, these are supported by your IDE.
