This question has nothing to do with Spring. So this is the wrong forum to ask that question.

Let me know which forum you would like to post this that is appropriate and I can move it there.

Or you can delete this thread and just post in the correct one.

You can use iText API to generate the PDF.

iText is a great library, but there are several other ways that may be more appropriate: FlyingSaucer if you're happen to have CSS-styled XHTML, or Apache FOP if you have XML in general.
I agree. Here's the link:
