iText, your favorite library to create and manipulate PDF documents, finally has its book: "iText in Action", published by Manning Publications Co.<br />
Since yesterday 'unedited drafts' of the first 10 chapters were released in the Manning Early Access Program. You can download the <a href="http://manning.com/lowagie/">first chapter for free</a>. By telling an 'almost true story', I give you an overview of all kinds of PDF solutions I used in a production environment in the past 8 years. It's a must-read for developers wanting to enhance their applications with PDF functionality.<br />
Note that the layout of this chapter isn't OK yet (it is, after all, an unedited draft). There are still some minor <a href="http://manning-sandbox.com/thread.jspa?threadID=16133&tstart=0">errors</a>, but it already gives you a good idea about the content of the other chapters. Section 1.3 offers you a visual menu of what will follow in the other 17 chapters.
