Hi there .

I have a pdf file.Does anyone know how can i edit it so that i can use it in a swing form to add data.

Something like cutting the file with photoshop and creating a file with editable fields so that i can use it But not for web but on a swing application.

i just want to add my pdf file inside a swing "form panel " and there manipulate it add data or remove data from there.

thanks in advanced

There are some pdf libraries for Java such as http://itextpdf.com/ or http://pdfbox.apache.org/. I've never used any of them so can't recommend the best one to choose.
