Addendum:
I have seen, Lowagie has opened a new project that might help you even better:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmlworker/files/xmlworker-1.1.0.zip/download?_test=goal
Creates from XML PDF files - I have not tested it, just saw it when verifying the links.
As mysql can directly generate XML-output this might be easier to create the result required.

To produce "on the fly" PDF from data you've been pulling from a database, on of the possibilities you have, is to use the iText library (either as jar for java or as dlll for csharp)
It will not do it "by itself" you'll have to create your document yourself, so it is programming effort, but it is wellknown and widely used for such purposes.

You can look here:
