Hi,

I would like to know how to convert a rtf file to pdf file using java?
I know iText library, but I'm not sure does this library can be used to do this conversion.
Can someone give me a sample, or tell me what other libraries can I use?

Thanks

Sorry for the late reply and thanks to all you experts.

I tried jfo (http://www.rtftofo.com/), it really works, but the result is not very satisfying.
I'll take a detailed look at windwardreports.

Yes, but most of them are used to create files of rtf or other formats.
I think what I need is something like a rtf parser, and then convert the parser result to pdf or something else.

You do not need any special packages for RTF processing, java already comes with a few of them. Take a look here:
