My requirement is, we have a RTF template and BI publisher gets us PDF/PPT/PPTX file report report based on the XML and RTF template.

Now i have decided to remove BI publisher from the Picture...

I am trying to convert RTF template to XSL and used Apache FO to get the output PDF. I am unable to generate output facing some issues,

Is this the right approach, do we have any other tool to convert RTF template to ???

Help me on this.

A quick look at the prices puts those in a range where it wouldn't take many developer hours to make buying cheaper than developing.
I agree. Here's the link:
