Subject RE: Loading pdf files using jsp

Adobe used to have a Java library but there were so many issues with it (and
Adobe did not support it) that they removed it from their downloads.

I would suggest a Google search, however, because I know many people have
asked this question (including me) over the years and someone is bound to
have written one by now.

Maybe you meant that you wanted to "WRITE" a PDF file from JSP?  Loading a
PDF file from a JSP is no different than loading any other web page from
JSP. If the client browser has the Adobe Acrobat plugin installed, any
hyperlink to PDF files will spawn the PDF file in the requesting browser.
You may need to ensure that your server is configured to accepct the PDF
mime-type, but other than that, it's a simple deal.

To write PDF's dynamically, there is a Java library that you can obtain
that is free. You'll have to dig for it though, cause I simply cannot
remember the name or where to get it. There are also numerous commercial
libraries that assist with writing dynamic PDF's on the server.
