Hello All,

Our project uses JSF 2, Spring 3. I was wondering if there is any way to generate a pdf from JSF page. Basically we have to preview the report generated in a pdf format with some options to Save/Submit buttons on the report. I really appreciate if anyone can post a sample code or suggest any possible solutions

Thanks

I would imagine that the best way to generate PDFs from a JSF page is the same as generating PDFs any other way - using the iText library. Have you tried that? And more importantly, is that what you were asking?

I was looking into Spring Framework to generate non HTMl output and found AbstractPdfView....

I am not sure how I can use iText library...If you can provide me a sample code to start with it will be very helpful to me


Thanks
