Stumbled upon iText

I found iText when I was looking for something else.  This let's you write PDFs from within Java.  VERY COOL!  I know I will be using this!

Easy to install.  I downloaded itextpdf-5.3.5.jar, copied it to my WEB-INF/lib, copied a sample program from the website (see links for "iText in Action" book for source code), compiled, and ran.  Bam! First PDF from a Java program.

I ordered "iText in Action" from Amazon.  About $20 for a used book.
