PDF Fonts not embedding after concatenate

I want to generate the pdf of all file formats by converting and with fonts embedded in it. I’m able to convert all types of file formats to pdf successfully. But the only issue we have is not able to embed the fonts after converted to pdf because Itext is not supported for PDF/A format in 2.1.7 version.


We are trying to convert the text, doc, jpg, xls, tif files to pdf where we are “lowagie.text” class which will use Itext jar files to convert in pega. Currently pega has 2.1.7 version, I found below article saying pega stopped upgrading itext due to some incompatible. Below is the url in pdn which we found.

I see in below URL says, PDF/A format will support by Itext only from 5.4.5 versions. PDF/A format is nothing but embedding the fonts in pdf after generating.

My question is, is there any other way to convert those type of files to pdf with font embedded in it. Or does pega will support to upgrade to higher version of itext.

Is there any new update on decision of Pega not upgrading to a higher version of iText.
