Is there any way, when designing a jasper file that will be used to generate a pdf file, to add some control that will display the contents of a richtext file(rtf)? I really need a solution to this.

I can not find anything on the link you suggested to take care of the richText file contents and display them on the out put pdf file using the jasper report.

I am outputing what the user sees to a pdf file using iReport. Part of the output is a richText file. Since it does not look like iReport has a way to display a rtf file. Could I have some java class take the rft file and convert it into jpg so I could display it as an image. This is all dynamic data that is being output to pdf.
I agree. Here's the link:
