Hi friends,

I want to know that , how can we create a pdf file in applet?

is there any java api like itext, which can help to open a pdf directly in a frame?

thanks in advance

Creating a PDF and displaying it are two different problems. For the creating part, a library like iText can indeed help (make sure you read its license, so that you don't end up having to distribute your source code).

For display, check out the PDF-Renderer library.

PDF-renderer is good for simple PDF documents. I found JPedal is much more better for complex PDFs.
