Generating PDF file using FOP API in Web Dynpro

Former Member

Hi experts,

I would like to generate PDF files from a WebDynpro application without using Adobe Interactive forms.

I think that I can export context data to XML stream and then apply XSLT transformation to produce XSLFO format and then pass it to xlfo processor i.e FOP to generate the PDF file.

Has someone already try this way of generating PDF files?

Is it a good way of processing ?

Thanks in advance.

hi Thomas,

You can make use of the iText API to create pdf documents through webdynpro.

For this you'll have to download the Itext api jar file.

Right click your webdynpro project include this jar file using the 'add external jar files'.Now you'll be able to make use of this api in your webdynpro project. .

The above link will help you in using iText API.

hope this one helps you.
