It's relatively performant and it's a mature and supported codebase that can accomplish most pdf tasks.

How I archived 100 million PDF documents... (Part 1)
6 projects | dev.to | 11 Jan 2023
So, when I started to view the documents, a lot of them simply failed to open. I had to look around for a library that could verify PDF documents. I had some experience with PDFBox in the past, so it seemed to be a good go-to solution. It had no way to verify documents by default, but it could open and parse them and that was enough to filter out the incorrect ones. It felt a little bit strange just to read the whole PDF into the memory to verify if it is correct or not, but hey I needed a simple fix for now and it worked really well.

Understanding PDF conversion

Something along these lines might be a better bet: https://pdfbox.apache.org/ - no idea if that's the best one, but you should be looking for modern, full-featured PDF manipulation libraries. GhostScript is definitely NOT that - it's an ancient PostScript interpreter that barely, barely supports PDFs.
