I create the query successfully from JSP but I don't have a code that will create me a PDF file, I can create a bad formatted XML file with the java.io library and the createFile command (in which I cannot insert line breaks!). Could you help me with these 2 problems?

Here is the code that I have:

<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" language="java" import="java.sql.*" errorPage="" %>
<%@ page import="java.io.*" %>
<%@ include file="Connections/BD.jsp" %>
<%
// Identify a carriage return character for each output line
int iLf = 10;
char cLf = (char)iLf;

// Create a new empty binary file, which will content XML output
File outputFile = new File("test.pdf");
outputFile.createNewFile();
FileWriter outfile = new FileWriter(outputFile);
// the header for XML file
outfile.write("<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>"+cLf);

try {
Driver Driverrs = (Driver)Class.forName(MM_BD_DRIVER).newInstance();
Connection Connrs = DriverManager.getConnection(MM_BD_STRING,MM_BD_USERNAME,MM_BD_PASSWORD);
PreparedStatement Statementrs = Connrs.prepareStatement("SELECT msg_cliente.idmsg_cliente, cliente.nempresa, cliente.contacto, status.descripcion, tipo_msg.descripcion, ingenieros.nombre, msg_cliente.problema FROM ingenieros INNER JOIN (tipo_msg INNER JOIN (status INNER JOIN (cliente INNER JOIN msg_cliente ON cliente.idcliente=msg_cliente.idcliente) ON status.idstatus=msg_cliente.idstatus) ON tipo_msg.idtipo_msg=msg_cliente.idtipo_msg) ON ingenieros.iding=msg_cliente.iding");
ResultSet rs = Statementrs.executeQuery();

 // Expecting at least one record
       if( !rs.next() ) {
              throw new IllegalArgumentException("No se encontraron datos");  }

outfile.write("<Documento>"+cLf);
       // Parse our recordset
       while(rs.next()) {
              outfile.write("<Reporte>"+cLf);
              outfile.write("<ID>" + rs.getString("idmsg_cliente") +"</ID>"+cLf);
              outfile.write("</Reporte>"+cLf);
}
outfile.write("</Documento>"+cLf);
%>
<html>
<head><title>Convertir a XML</title></head>
Archivo convertido.
</html>
<%
rs.close();
Statementrs.close();
Connrs.close();
outfile.close();
}
catch( Exception er ){
%>
       <exception><%= er.getMessage()%></exception>
<%outfile.close();}%>

Thank you !!
