Big Faceless PDF Viewer

The Big Faceless Java PDF Viewer is a Swing component that can display PDF documents. It is intended for developers who don't require the full API. The PDF Viewer can be installed as an applet, an application, via Java Web Start, or embedded in a Swing application. Printing, saving, text search, forms, digital signatures, and annotations are some of the many features available. The viewer can be tailored to include just the features you need, and is a cost-effective solution for those needing the features of Adobe Acrobat on a Java platform.


Recent releases

    Release Notes: The Save dialog now works when no Exporter features are defined.

    •  07 Mar 2014 01:04

      Release Notes: This release adds a facility to load the KeyStore from a jar. In the viewer, if when calling Importer.setFile() the file is not absolute, the Save dialog will default to the last directory used by the user. This is useful for saving files loaded from streams or URLs.

        Release Notes: No change, but the release has been renumbered to 2.15 because the behavior of the PDF page list is, technically, an API change.

        •  12 Dec 2013 23:36

          Release Notes: Will prompt if a password is required when loading a PDF over HTTP. Adds a cut/paste option for pages, and correctly orders pages cut/pasted this way. Fixes a failure to redraw after reordering pages in some circumstances.

          •  09 May 2013 02:34

            Release Notes: A Java 1.5 incompatible change in a previous release was reverted. It is ensured that the action() method is always called in features, which is required by overloaders. An occasional NPE from PagePanel.doLayout when deleting annotations was fixed. The order of activated/loaded/deactived events was fixed The French translation was improved.
