Subject Re: make pdf using JSF
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2008 22:03:49 GMT
After quick check, seems seam is a bit of big framework to add for just 
pdf, does not support jdk 1.4 (>=5.0 only), and anyway there doesn't 
seem to be seam component that add text at specific location of an 
existing document, which is my aim. (It will be generated by a fill the 
form, get a prefilled PDF form to print web page).

Any other suggestion?

Thank you.
