Hi

I am generating PDF reports using Itext. using Itext, is it possible to disable the print facility in the generated report.
Aslo, can we make the PDF document password protected.

I do not know if the PDF format itself allows you to set up a document such that it is password-protected or print-disabled. You should probably drop in on Adobe's site for such info.
But I am assuming, since you posted this on the JSP forum, that you are serving up the PDF via a Servlet (preferred) or a JSP. In that case, you can password protect the Servlet/JSP that serves up the document using any number of protection schemes (home-grown, container-managed, Apache access, etc).
hth,
