I have an assignment to convert html to pdf. The html file may contain images, heading, text, tables etc. The output pdf file should look like the original pdf.

I have googled and found out some links. While i am investigating those links, can some one suggest what would be good APIs that would help me to do this conversion.

Any help will be appreciated.

If it's CSS-styled XHTML, then the FlyingSaucer library can do this.

You could also try OpenOffice's Java API (I think OO can open HTML files), or a library like JODCOnverter that uses OO in server mode.

Hi Ulf,
Thanks for your quick responses. I have been able to generate PFDs from HTML using FlyingSaucer. The PDFs generate are pretty neat.

Hi Ulf,
I am trying to do pdf generation from html, but only first page of pdf is generated. The entire html is not converted to pdf. Let me know what should be done to rectify the problem. I spent time looking at the code but cannot find any clue.

HTML



CSS
