Vijay,
i already have a Java program using FO in XSL that generated pdf as o/p file in the browser..... now i want to save that file on hard disk .. how can i save it .. is there any api for saving the pdf file.... as we have for generating pdf files

Are you trying to write it to disk on the server or client?
If the server: The PDF file is written to a stream. Just write that stream to a location on disk.
If the client: Set the type to attachment. The user will be prompted to select a download location.

secondly .. how do we append two pdf files in java ... i am using jdk1.3 , weblogic . I need api .. pure java program to append the pdf files

I think you will need a commercial API for that. The free ones don't seem to read in PDF.
