Hello E'body,
Recently I have created a web application using websphere studio & VisualAge for Java(Professional Edition 3.5.3).
I have also published it onto the Websphere Application Server(WAS 3.5.3).
I basically want to make a change.I would like to change the JSP reults page( generated dynamic data ) into PDF format and open it using Acrobat reader, on the fly.
Does websphere or VisualAge for Java have any PDF API for java.
Do I have to write my own code or depend on third-parties. If so where can I look for PDF API for Java.
I would really appreciate your help and support, if you could let me know what are the possible solutions to overcome this problem.
Thanks a lot :-)

I dont think ibm has any PDF api, try Apache's FOP (http://xml.apache.org/fop/index.html)

There is a very good PDF api available from iText. Do a search on iText and you will find it.
