Hi,

I have a html document which is being rendered by a JSP which is basically a report and can get lengthy. Is there a Java library would help me convert this page into a pdf document which can be served via any browser? I checked out iText but they confess it does not work well with JSP's and has some performance issues but is pretty good with servlets and on low traffic sites. I am looking an open source product. Please advice.

Thanks,
chintaps

I already looked at iText and the java world article before I posted this question here. There are couple of tradeoffs with with iText which I already pointed out and when we need to use 3 products (JTidy, Xalan and FOP) which increases the complexity of implementation and maintenance. I was looking for a more graceful solution. Is buying a commercial product my only option?
