I think you can purchase libraries to do this. Simply use your favourite search engine to find them, "java pdf api" would be a good starting point.

One example is jPDFPrint from Qoppa Software (I have no connection with them, never used their software and so cannot comment on quality or provide any support).

Check out the JODConverter library.

For doing it manually, find a Macintosh :-) It can create PDFs from within any application's print dialog.

Hi there,

There is "free" software out there to convert. Google "free print to pdf"

Sorry dude, using java or any other programming language will be too much headache for 1 document.

Best of luck.
