Is there a way to create a PDF(preferred) or a doc file on the fly from a template. For example: I recieve a PDF or Doc file with a complex layout predefined. In that layout is there a way to Specify region in that document were content would go. Such as in the upper left there is a something like invoice_number  in the position where the invoive number will go. THen have the java application be able to open the document design outside of the software and replace the predefined regions with the actual content.  This rather then having an xml pass through an xslt and generated through fop.  The goal here is to allow someone to create the template's layout and allow that to change and the Java wouldn't care one way or the other how the layout was.

Any insights will be help full.
