Convert rtf file to pdf file

Hi all,

I have a jsp page to generate a report and save it as a rtf file and show it on the page. Is there a way to convert the rtf file to a pdf file and show it on the page? I know that there are some programs that can convert files to pdf files. But I need it to be done automatically with java codes. Thanks.

iText AFAIK can't convert RTF to PDF:


But have no fear CodeLover, as instead of generating an RTF, you can use the library linked to by bloodredsun to generate a PDF instead...

So just skip the RTF stage ;-)
