Do you want to allow static or dynamic pdf files ?
If you want static pdf files then it is not a problem at all.
If you want generate pdf files on the fly then you can use iText JAVA library: http://www.lowagie.com/iText/ 
http://itextdocs.lowagie.com/tutorial/general/webapp/index.html - is a link to tutoril page about generating pdf file in your web application using servlet or JSP.

response.setContentType("application/pdf");
