Which part are you struggling with: creating an HTML form , processing its contents after submission to the server, or creating a PDF from said contents?

What do you have so far?

I too somewhat has the same requirement. Instead of html, its a swing form. User need to enter data, and get its printout. I am using iReport. SO, is there such kind of feature with iReport?
(Sorry, if i need to create a separate topic for this)

I agree. Here's the link:
