There is nothing in JSP for working with PDFs.
Moving to Other Open Source Projects where Apache-Fop, iText, etc.. are discussed.

DOC-to-PDF is hard. Have a look at OpenOffice, which can read DOC and generate PDFs (some links are here.

XSL is just text, so you can treat it just like you would treat text files. iText can handle images like GIFs as well as text.
