I notify you of iText on .NET Framework.
IKVM 0.14 released on 11th May. I tested iText 1.3.1 with IKVM. It follows that most of features are works fine and show comparable performance with Java version. (I did benchmark test using a example code in http://itextdocs.lowagie.com/tutorial/ . It took 17.5 seconds in Java 1.5.0_03, 18.0 seconds in .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 on my machine.)
So the role of iText.NET may decrease gradually and be replaced by IKVM in the near future.... read more
I did a very simple benchmark test of various iText ports on my PC. The profile of my PC is the following.
CPU: Xeon 2.8 GHz Dual processor
OS: Windows XP Professional SP2
CLR: .NET Framework 1.1
JavaVM: JRE SE 1.4.2_06-b03
The results are the followings. The times were measured using JUnit or .NET port of JUnit by J#.
iText 1.2.1 (Java; original)
2.718 sec and 2.110 sec
iText .NET 1.2.1 (J# port)
3.687 sec and 3.141 sec
iTextSharp 0.04 (C# port; based on iText 0.95; <http://itextsharp.sourceforge.net/>)
1.532 sec and 1.234 sec... read more
iText.NET 1.1-1 and Hyphenation Tools are released. iText.NET is .NET porting of iText, a free Java-PDF library. This release is based on iText 1.1. iText.NET is written in J#, but it was added useful overload functions to access from C#. Now you don't need to use java.io.OutputStream, signed byte array etc. C# example codes were renewed. Classes regarding Graphics2D and certifications aren't ported yet. Further out , Hyphenation Tools contains .NET-ported JAXP and Xerces.
iTextdotNET 1.02-7 released. iTextdotNET is .NET porting of iText, a free Java-PDF library. This release still based on iText 1.02b, but basic assemblies were replaced completely. And ASP.NET example code was added.
ConcatPDF 1.1.1 was released as a example application of iText .NET. It can concatenate and encrypt PDF files. I hope it helps iText users.
