    The FDF Toolkit is the best for that.

    I found this.
    If you are planning or developing a new PHP application that needs to operate with PDF forms data, I strongly recommend to use XFDF format instead of FDF. You won't need any additional libraries because XFDF is XML-based. Plus, there are all signs that Adobe is gradually phasing out FDF in favor of XFDF (for example, they don't even let you download FDF Toolkit anymore, you have to request it from them).
    SMILE! everyone will wonder what you're up to.
