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.

Java's a roundabout way of satisfying your requirements, but you can look into tools such as POI, FOP, iText, etc. for reading MS Word Documents and generating PDF files...
