Java News from Thursday, November 9, 2006

Smardec has released Allatori 1.3, a $775 payware Java byte code obfuscator.

David Cranshaw has released SQLiteJDBC 029, a JDBC driver for the SQLite database. "It is written as a thin driver on top of the SQLite 3.3.x C API. The native JNI library has SQLite compiled into it so all you need to do is include the two files packaged above in your project." It's published under the BSD license. This release fixes bugs.

The Big Faceless Organization has released the Big Faceless PDF Library 2.7.5, a $700 payware (more if you want support) Java class library for creating PDF documents. The $1300 Extended Edition adds the AcroForms support, digital signatures, and the ability to import and edit and existing PDF documents. Version 2.7.5 improves performance and supports certifying signatures that enable restrictions to be placed on the types of changes that can be made to a PDF after it has been signed.
