Download jars are available in signed and unsigned versions. A debug version of each is also available. JPedal needs Java6 or higher.

Please note that the new GUI effects of the current release relies on Sun’s JAI libraries being on your classpath. You can get these and other optional jars at additional jars.

1.: Source Code access is only available to OEM customers only.

Some PDF files need additional jar libraries

  • JCE library is required for Encrypted files.
  • Download jar with CMaps for CID fonts. JPedal requires this in the classpath if you are using PDFs with CID fonts.
  • JAI can be used to enhance image handling, especially for Tiffs. Files with JPEG2000 encoded images will also need imageio.jar, which is part of JAI – we have included our modified version of imageio.jar. These can be downloaded from here
