About Mustangproject:
Java developers can use the Mustangproject library to read and write ZUGFeRD data in PDF invoices in their software. ZUGFeRD-Invoices can be opened as normal invoices in any arbitrary PDF viewer but also contain invoice data such as amount, payment details or tax rates in a machine-readable format. Therefore, this data can be parsed automatically which helps to simplify the payment and accounting process.

Mustangproject has been developed within the framework of the open source accounting application software Gnuaccounting by usegroup and was awarded with the Open Source Business Alliance award "OSBAR" in December 2015.

About ZUGFeRD:
ZUGFeRD is a open metadata standard for PDF-invoices. Like normal PDFs, ZUGFeRD invoices can be opened in any PDF viewer but, invisibly, contain a machine-readable copy of the invoice data. This way the invoices can checked, paid and booked semi-automatically or automatically.

Currently more than 160 suppliers from seven countries support invoices in the ZUGFeRD-Standard (as of March 2016).
