HI guys
I have a requirement where i have to generate report in PDF and RTF format on fly using the data from the database . The client should be able to view those reports in the browser. Is there any way to generate report in such format using JSP.
Thanks in advance

I had seen one of the code examples setting MIME type to PDF, but I never got it to work. Thank you for asking though, because I really like to find out also.

"Prasoon",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Hi,
We are using Sitraka's JClass PageLayout which provides sophisticated and easy-to-use APIs for adding text, images, and tables to any document. Output directly to the Java AWT Printer, Acrobat PDF, HTML, PostScript Level 2, or PCL 5. Customize almost every aspect of your report styles and print output for professional results.
HTH..
Anil

Try iText (http://www.lowagie.com/iText). There is support for PDF and HTML. PageLayout from Sitraka is nice, but expensive. I helped evaluate it and found that the HTML output was subpar compared to iText and it eats a lot of memory. iText also supports rendering PDF and HTML at the same time.
