Hi friends!

I am looking for an API to create pdf dynamically from a web application.
I know one API which works for this purpose is iText.

I would like to know if there are any other APIs available in the market for this purpose.
And which one is the best API.

There rarely is a single "best" of anything - it all depends on the requirements. iText is API-driven, but there are other approaches: FOP if your input data is in XML format, or FlyingSaucer for CSS-styled XHTML pages.
