EJB design: PDF generation

  1. PDF generation (8 messages)

    I am looking for an application that can either convert my html document to pdf or generate a new pdf given some data. The document will have some images as well as tables.

    Can anybody help me with that? I am using Weblogic Application server.

    Try xml.apache.org. They have a package called "FOP" which will let you do this. The only thing that sucks is that you can't use HTML to format the data. There is a special XSL formatting language used to create, but it doesn't take too long to use. I used it on the last project that I worked on to dynamically generate and display PDF genertated contracts and it worked great.

    Thanks Jesse,
    Can you give me some tips on how to move? Actually the document I need to convert has lots of tables within tables in the html. Can we define same kind of structure thru XSL?

    Hi madhu,
    If you have request objects with the data shown in the html document, then i think this package would help. It is a jar file named iText039.jar. It is a freeware and is available in the site http://www.lowagie.com
    It contains of simple api's which can convert text data to
    pdf.
