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.

    public static void Create_Pdf(String args[])
