Hello,
Could someone advice me on the following thing: I am developping a web application using the Spring framework. For the web layer, I intend to use the JSF (MyFaces implementation) instead of Spring MVC because I have to manage some complex graphical widgets as tree. Is it possible with JSF to generate PDF document easily as with Spring MVC and its dedicated view for PDF or Excel generation.
Is it possible to use Itext for this ?

Thank you very much for any help

You can generate PDF documents using IText using any API/Framework.

Thanks Greg.

Do you think it can be possible to use the JasperReport tool and its API to generate PDF or EXCEL file.
