We need to generate a pdf file using the images stored in the tables. Images are stored in the BFILE format and our website is in PL/SQL. So we know we can generate pdf files using oracle reports. what are steps to be followed . We need to do this in the code of PL/SQL(programatically). Has anyone done this before ? Please help with an answer.

Quating from the above
to  have jave code to work with frr pdf writing options like Ghostscript You need the following
create or replace and compile 
java source named "Util" 
package createpdf;
import com.lowagie.text.*;
import com.lowagie.text.pdf.PdfWriter;
public class Util extends Object 
    public static void Create_Pdf(String args[]) 
	  Document document = new Document();
	  try {
	        PdfWriter.getInstance(document, new FileOutputStream("d:\\Doc.pdf"));;
	        document.add(new Paragraph(args[0]));
	  catch (DocumentException de) 
	  catch (IOException ioe) 
create or replace function CREATE_NEW_PDF(p_src in varchar2) return varchar2 
language java 
name 'Util.Create_Pdf(java.lang.String) return String'; 
And also I have executed: 
dbms_java.grant_permission('<DB_USER>','java.lang.RuntimePermission','*', 'writeFileDescriptor' );
