    Question Creating a pdf without 3rd library

    I want create a simple pdf-document (a headline and a paragraph), but without a 3rd library like iText or other.
    It can also be patched together text-based.

    Does anyone have a tip or code-snippet?

    Thanks in advance.

    a) get to know the PDF file spec very intimately and/or b) use the source code of an open source project (eg PDFBox) as a guide.
