Thanks for response.

I was seen that iText and i am able to implement that one in SERVLET and in JSP but not in JSF.
So, i want to generate PDF on fly in JSF when clicking on a link.


Thanks

For tabular data I'd check out DisplayTag: http://www.displaytag.org/

Sorry, I gave you a fast answer that wasn't complete.
With Jboss Seam you can create a pdf in the similar way you create classic jsf page.
http://docs.jboss.com/seam/latest/reference/en-US/html/itext.html

You can fill this "page" with data the same way you fill the displayed jsf page. Than all you need is a link to this page and you'll get a pdf.
