Hi all,
I need to start evaluating products/libraries for building PDF using JAVA and an XSLT processor.
I have experience with FOP, iText and XEP, but I never tested its performance.
Can anyone post a link with some resources to start from??
Does anyone of you has to suggest a products/library???
I need to build PDF varying from 1-10 pages to 200-300pages in an application running on WebLogic8 istance.
Thks in advance

The performance is probably very much dependent on the type of content your PDFs will have -- images are heavier stuff than text or lines and boxes.

This post also appears in the Performance forum, where it is best suited, so I will close this one.
Please do not post the same topic in multiple forums.
