All: I had posted a couple of requests earlier asking for help & guidance in starting a project but I did not get many responses. I know that Javaranch is very user-friendly and hoping that someone/many would help me with this and hence this post. I need some guidance in deciding which technology to use to develop a web application that generates PDF forms, has lot of database transactions, should generate reports based on the database values etc. It would be an intranet application and I was wondering which would be better - ASP/HTML/database OR use of JSP/Servlets/database etc. We can generate PDF forms using ASP but I am not sure if it is possible with JSP. Can any one advise me on this? Also, could you suggest which tools would be better and easier for creating the GUI etc. Now, I use Visual Interdev to create plain HTML forms. Thanks Viji
Okay.. here's a question for you since we started talking about PDF files. Where can I find this Cacoon. I'm looking to generate PDF files on the fly and I need a product to help me do this. Can it do this. Also if so, can it do the following. I need to be able to show a page with a watermark however I need to be able to remove this watermark dynamically to be able to print it for later use. I have an insurance form that needs to say (NOT A BILL) as a water mark. However the company also wants to be able to use the same form and just remove the watermark for printing later. (for resending bills out to customers) Any ideas?
