iText based viewer in WebTop

Posted: 9th August 2010 by davy in Development, Java

I wanted to be able to add a watermark to a PDF file thats stored in Documentum.  I wanted to make sure the PDF had a date and time mark to show when it was printed or viewed.  You can always add a watermark during the rendition but when you get the PDF file out for print or view you might need the data and time.

I utilized the brilliant iText library embedded into a modified class.

iText allows you to add a stamp on the PDF – nice and fast.  I decompiled the WDK java classes and added a method to modify the PDF on the server and then allow it to be delivered to the client PC.

Also very useful if you ever need to do anything with the content from any WebTop application.    Send article as PDF
