Converting HTML file to PDF using PLSQL

Hello Experts,

I am generating an html file using Oracle PLSQL and now I want to convert the .html file into PDF using Oracle code.

My Oracle database version is on 11gR2 with Linux OS.

Thanks in advance.

I guess you are talking about the sqlplus with the 'SET MARKUP HTML ON' option. I guess you run a script that produces an html file. sqlplus will not be able to generate the pdf file directly. However, you are able to convert the html to pdf using a third party tool. I nice open source tool is called wkhtmltopdf. Check it, it is easy to use:
html2pdf input.html output.pdf

You're also able to create PDFs straight out of PL/SQL, but you'll still have to parse the HTML though ;-)
