I need a java api that I can use to convert Word Documents to PDF on the fly.  I don't want to use POI or IText because I need it to support complex tables.  

Thanks

Do you need an API? You can also invoke a standalone program with Runtime.getRuntime.exec(...). If you know a Word to PDF converter which supports your complex tables.. then I would go for that, surely that program has a command line interface for batch-files for example.

If there are Word to PDF converters which can do it directly, then Java doesn't come into the picture in between them. You need a Java API if you want something to come between them, interpret the Word (say using Openoffice or POI) and then convert it to PDF (using say iText).

Java does come into play because the application is a java based web application running on tomcat.

Yes, but the Java application can directly call the converter to do the conversion.
