Hi,

Is there any open source API or others which can be used to convert a RTF document to PDF document using Java.

It should also be able to convert double byte characters.

Thanks in Advance

Tried using Itext version 2.1.5 and 2.1.7. But the alignment of the pdf was not good. Also it was not able to render some of the RTF content properly.

When I searched it was found that it was still under development RTF to PDF conversion in iText and the classes corresponding to conversion were available in itext-rtf.jar.

Hence I tried using the latest itext version like 5.0.0 and 5.0.2 and found that the corresponding conversion classes were found missing in latest versions.

So I assume that they stopped such conversion in latest itext. Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.
