I am seeking advice and suggestions concerning creating PDF documents. I researched many sites but thought I would ask you folks about it.
I will be extracting data from MS SQL Server - 2014 database from many tables to create/populate the PDF document which will be on our web server.
Basically, the user will click a button and code will generate the PDF file.
I can find my way around Java but client doesn't not want to use C or Net.
I use localhost - Win 10 - and mainly PHP - v5.6.25 (client version - no plans to upgrade - their web server is Linux) with Wampserver and Apache 2.4.23.
I have looked at Apache PDFBox - got confused about it. I also took a long peek at iText. I did request a quote but they have never responded to me.
The creation of the PDF document must be created programmatically.
Any thoughts - suggestions - advice would be appreciated.
