hello simon,

thank you for the response.  i reviewed the FOP site and also found a link
to something called iText.

i am new to this area - so i am still grappling with all of the options and
lib's out there.  maybe i need to restate my problem statement.

Problem statement: 

given the fact that i am programmatically creating XLS files, using POI, out
on the unix file system - how would i then programmatically take each of the
generated XLS files and translate them to PDF format?

Can POI programmatically read in an XLS file and "save as" a PDF document?

Can FOP read in an XLS file and translate it to PDF?

Can iText read in an XLS file and translate it to PDF?

thank you
