I know that JEditorPane does not support PDF files as of yet. At least to the best of my knowledge they don't. But here is a question. I am using the iText package in a servlet to display a report in PDF format from a database. This works fine from IE, Netscape, etc.
Is there a way to "capture" the pdf file when it comes back to the JEditorPane and write it out to a file and then I could just open it using Runtime.exec()??

Why don't you use JTextPane? It supports pdf file and html file?

Renee, I have been searching for information on JTextPane and PDF files, but can't find anything. Do you have any information on how to make it work?
