I am in the process of converting a windows application I created into a web application. One of the functions my current application does is automate Abobe Acrobat pdf files. I use CreateObject(ACROForms) and add form fields and javascript so when the pdf prints it has a special note along with the current printed date displayed on it.

Is this possible with my web app. I use JSP, Servlets, and Java classes(WebSphere) to design my app.

What do you mean by "automate PDF files"? A library like iText can create PDF files, or fill in their AcroForms.
