EJB design: PDF generation
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.
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?
