i want to add pdf meta properties to existing pdf files ussing itext library. when i do this using following code

Document document = new Document();
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("Meta.pdf");
PdfWriter.getInstance(document, fos);
document.addTitle("my title");
document.addSubject("my subject.");
document.addKeywords("iText, Hello World, step 3");
document.addCreator("My program using iText");
document.addAuthor("Nasir");
document.open();
document.add(new Paragraph("Hello World"));
document.close();


it adds this meta information in document surmmary (i.e. File Menu -> Document Properties -> Summary). [see the image attached (doc_summary.jpg)]

I want to enter the same information through script using java+itext in pdf file propertes (i.e. right click pdf -> properties -> pdf properties tab). [see the image attached (doc_properties.jpg)]

please let me know what is the appropriate way for doing that. sample code will be bonus for me.
