Hello

I want to write an application able to transform a RTF file into a PDF file.

I tried with IText, but the result was not very nice:

1 - I created a simple RTF file with "bla" as content with wordpad. The PDF file was generated with success.
2 - I created a simple RTF file with "bla" as content and using Word. The PDF file was generated but with several useless characters.

Anyway I read that IText for RTF stills under development, so it is not a solution.

Anyone knows how can I do such a transformation?

Thanks
Regards

AFAICT, the RTF part of iText is pretty much dead. But in any case, it can only create RTF, not read RTF, so its value for an RTF2PDF conversion is low.

If having OpenOffice installed is an option, then I'd look into the JODConverter library.
