Hello "java_guy",
May I ask you to update your profile by changing your display name into something that complies with our naming policy?
Thanks, and welcome to the 'ranch!

A quick googling gave me the following links within the first couple of pages:
http://www.lowagie.com/iText/index.html
http://big.faceless.org/products/pdf/
http://www.elegantjbeans.com/pdf/
http://retep.org/retep/pdf/home.do
http://www.andykhan.com/orinoco/
Finally, if you don't find any of these suitable for your needs, you can always make your application produce XSL-FO documents and run them through Apache FOP to get a PDF...
