JPedal Java PDF Viewer logo


JPedal is written in 100% Java and does not need additional platform-specific native libraries to be installed. If it runs Java 8 or above, it runs JPedal.


The JPedal SDK includes a set of simple methods to perform common tasks such as PDF to Image conversion, PDF printing, Text extraction and search. The Java PDF viewer also includes a full API to integrate, customise and interact with in your code.

Support for JPedal is done extremely well and for continuously using the software, what the customer needs is good support for the issues we face. And it is superb in that respect.

The support provided in resolving issues is one of the best among multiple third-party providers that we have experienced..

We have found JPedal to be a reliable and easy-to-use high level PDF library.


The JPedal SDK includes everything you need to view, print, search, rasterize, annotate and extract content from PDF files in your Java code.


JPedal has been specifically designed with developers in mind. Giving them the tools they require to add PDF capabilities to their own applications.


JPedal’s developers are obsessive about quality. When they are not making the content as true to the original as possible, they are working to reduce the memory usage and increase speed or fix odd PDF files.


JPedal provides its own API so you can quickly customise. Documentation and support are provided by the same developers work wrote the software so we can quickly answer your questions and help you.

JPedal allows you to print PDF files in Java. Java native print support does not support printing PDF files. Which is why we’ve written our own and added numerous enhancements to match the capabilities in Adobe Acrobat. Just like PDF printing in Acrobat, JPedal gives complete control over the Java PDF printing process allowing you to scale, center, rotate, fit to page, print over the page, and more.

Print PDF Files from the Java PDF Viewer

Print PDF files in Java

JPedal allows you to print PDF files directly from the PDF Viewer. You can choose to:

  • Specify the scaling, page margins and resolution
  • Choose the page range
  • Print in grayscale
  • Choose paper source by PDF page size

Print PDF files directly from your Java code

JPedal also lets you print PDF files directly from your Java code. Java offers a generic printing solution called Java Printing Services and JPedal extends this to add print support to Java. Last time we counted there were over 50 possible PDF print combinations available in JPedal to cover every PDF printing requirement.

Documentation and Code Examples

PrintPdfPages has a simple code example for printing a PDF file from Java. We also have a tutorial for creating a more complete example which gives you greater control over how the printing takes place.
