Hi All,

Does somebody know how to convert word file format to pdf format in java? For example, I load a word file from database, after review it, then convert it into pdf file and save into database. Thank you so much.

Neither Word nor PDF files are trivial to work with, so there most likely is not a general answer. Libraries that allow you to read Word files and write PDF files are linked from the Accessing File Formats page.
