PDFxStream for Java or .NET may be downloaded and used for free (gratis), or licensed. It delivers the same accuracy, API, and PDF compatibility in either case.
If you do not purchase a PDFxStream license, then you will only be able to use PDFxStream in single-threaded applications. Specifically, you will not be able to read more than one PDF file at a time; attempts to open more than one PDF file at a time from multiple application threads will result in an error.
This limitation is lifted once you purchase PDFxStream and deploy it with a license file.
PDFxStream may not be redistributed under any circumstance, except with an OEM license.
Three steps to PDF data extraction success with PDFxStream
- Download a PDFxStream bundle below, or configure your project to use PDFxStream from our Maven repository if you're using Java/JVM
- Copy-and-paste code samples from the home page and throughout the detailed PDFxStream technical documentation to get results fast.
- Get technical PDFxStream evaluation help, tips, and news via email:
Whether you download a PDFxStream bundle, or obtain PDFxStream through our Maven repository, doing so is acknowledgement that you have read, understood, and agree to abide by the PDFxStream license agreement (included in all downloaded bundles).
PDFxStream bundles contain everything you need to evaluate and use it: binaries, sample code, and extensive documentation.

If you want PDFxStream for Java (or any other language on the JVM: Clojure, Scala, Groovy, JRuby, Jython, and so on), you can add it to your project via our Maven repository and be up and running in seconds.
Add our repository to your
pom.xml (or other
Maven-compatible dependency-management configuration):
<repositories> <repository> <id>snowtide-releases</id> <url>http://maven.snowtide.com/releases</url> <releases> <enabled>true</enabled> </releases> </repository> </repositories>
…and a dependency on PDFxStream:
<dependency> <groupId>com.snowtide</groupId> <artifactId>pdfxstream</artifactId> <version>3.3.5</version> </dependency>
All older releases of PDFxStream are also available via our Maven repository; just change the version number as needed.
Versions prior to v3.0.0 were deployed with an artifact name
<dependency> <groupId>com.snowtide</groupId> <artifactId>pdftextstream</artifactId> <version>2.7.0</version> </dependency>
