Hi experts,
I have a jsp page where the user clicks the generate pdf button. After the pdf is generated with pre-populated pdf, the user clicks the submit button. After this I need to pass all the information to a servlet. How can i do it?

Probably you need some API that convert PDF to xml. I don't know any. But hope it helps you a little bit.

AFAIK, there is no direct way of doing it. You can have a look at the following links


You can extract the pdf form or data in to text and then servlet may process that data.
