I have a PDf file which has forms.
Does any one know of any Java API that can be used to fill in values into the form .
I wish to open the form at runtime and populate the PDF and then show the output as a printer friendly output ?

Thanks
Dhiren

In particular, the com.lowagie.examples.forms.fill.Register example fills in a form in an existing PDF.

And if you want to check whether other alternatives support this or not, here is a list of similar libraries:
