Another difference is the duration of generating the PDF document. iText is much faster to generate very long documents.


iText has a lot of functionalities using directly the Java libraries, but less ones using the Cocoon iText Serializer. You can however use the Serializer with Cocoon, like FOP: FOP uses XSL:FO, iText uses its own format (iText-xml)
