Hi ,
I am running a web application on linux and need some conversion tools or mechanism for converting a word document to pdf format.

I had a look at apache fop,itext but these need the input inform of xml,meaning i had to manually input all the word document data into xml and then had to process the xml for pdf generation.
Is there a direct way to convert the word document into PDF for web application?

Its bit urgent.. thank you
