Subject Re: Cannot load pre existing PDF to access fields
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2015 17:13:09 GMT
Currently, I am using version 1.8.10 (pdfbox-app-1.8.10.jar).



Is there a minimum Java version for this jar? I am importing this into an
IBM Domino implementation, which runs an older version of Java. Perhaps
that is the issue?
