There are various ways to generate PDF (chiefly iText, FOP and FlyingSaucer - check the https://coderanch.com/how-to/java/AccessingFileFormats page). But I'm not aware of a ready-made HTML-to-PDF converter; maybe the JODConverter library if running OpenOffice in server mode is a possibility.

I have used YahpConverter with limited success in the past. I also know of PD4ML which I still need to test, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. It's not free though.
