Hi,

I got a problem here. I have stored data's in the database, now I want to retrieve those data's into PDF format. Is there is any 3rd party tool/plugin available for PDF?

What exactly is the problem - retrieving data from a DB, or creating a PDF from the data? Neither sounds like a Swing problem (which this forum is all about).

PDFs can be created in various ways - iText and Apache FOP are powerful libraries to do so.

The thing is I have created a textfield, the data's entered in the textfield should be stored in the database, then the stored data's should be retrieved in PDF..

So the problem consists of a) saving data to a DB, b) retrieving data from a DB, and c) creating a PDF? Still, nothing to do with Swing. For a and b you're better off asking in the JDBC forum. For c you should check out the libraries I mentioned; questions about those would be best asked in the Other Open Source projects forum.
