Topic: Changing text field of an existing PDF
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 31664

I would like to use JavaServerPages(JSP) to take user input like "John" and change a text field in a PDF to the value that the user inputs like "Jane". I then want to save the new PDF file and send it to a printer.

Is this possible? Are there any free software for doing this? I noticed that PDF supports Javascript so I might use such a solution if it isn't possible with JSP.

The PDF file will contain a graphic image with a label on top of it. I only want to be able to dynamically change the label.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, please mail me at: christernordvik@hotmail.com if someone has a solution to this!
