Printable version of jsp/HTML

We need to add print functionality for the every page that we are developing in Struts environment.
I am looking for some generic solution where a printable version of the page(Preferably a PDF) will be generated based on elements in Jsp.
What I mean is, let's say I change my Jsp to add one more element(textbox,dropdown), I want my print version of Jsp to automatically take care of the new element.

I do not have any problem producing some printable version of a form from the rendered html if at all there is a way to accomplish the same task much easier.

All I need is to be able to have some generic solution for a printable version of every page we develop

Please advice me the best approach.

Thank you very much for all your advice

You can try Print style sheets, so that you could control the way the elements get printed.

Hope this Helps.

I agree. Here's the link:
