Need web app to create documents: Apache FOP or Adobe PostScript?

101 100+
I'm looking to create a web application that creates a document based on what you input.

The two options I see are:

-have a php/asp script that creates a postscript document, then uses a command line call, to use ghostscript to convert the postscript to pdf


-use apache FOP.

I'll be working in asp/iis invironment, but I want to try out a linux solution too. Can anyone shed some light on this, or give their experiences?

hi ...

i'm quite sure that PHP has enough possibilities to directly create pdf-documents ... you may have a look here ... for example

kind regards

Try using eQuill (www.equill.nl)

You can define a report from an ODBC (MySQL, ...) datasource.
You can then use pageheaders/pagefooters/groupings/etc... to define your report.

eQuill will generate a PDF that you can send back to the browser.
