    Question Convert contents of JTextArea / JEditorPane to PDF

    Dear Forum,

    I want to transfer the text or contents of JTextArea or JEditorPane to a PDF file. Also, I want to transfer the contents of a text file (.txt and .rtf) into a PDF file. Are there any Java classes / packages available for this?

    Thanks and regards,

    K. Rangarajan.

    Hello rangarajank.

    I would look into iText

    iText, a Free Java-PDF Library: Home Page
