My aim is to generate PDF document from prepared Javadoc in Eclipse.

I found a tool:
but it seems to work with old version of Maven. I wasn't able to set it up so far.

Also tried with:
but i get an Exception:
No such method found startGenerate

Any idea how to do this? Is there any other tool or how to use mentioned tools properly?
