Pinned topic Generate PDF in Servlet

‏2001-11-02T21:22:03Z |
Hello all

I spoke to many people about the problem of generating PDF in Java. But noone
could help me.
The problem: I need a free of charge API to generate PDF directly in Java
(something like a PDF-API). For Example something like iText, but this product
has the GNU-Licence-Problematic, so is not usable for redistribution in a
customer-project.

Has someone an idea how to generate PDFs in Java ? Or a detailed cookbook ?

Thanks in advance

Oliver Wlodarczak

      The problem using iText is that is contains the GNU-Licence. That means, I have
      to declare my code using the iText-API as OpenSource ! But this is not
      acceptable, because I wish to use this API in a bank ! I need free Sources
      without something like the GNU-Licence !

    Java class libraries from Qoppa Software can do this. Licensing for redistribution is available.
