I am trying to create pdf reports out of a web-based application using servlets. I am not sure how this can be done.

The pdf files needs to be created everytime the report is requested. All the contents (not editable) of the report comes from the servlet.

Moreover, the background of the report has 2 colors split vertically (1/4th color blue, and 3/4th white), and some sections of the report falling in the blue section.

Is this possible to do? How do I create pdf files (in a specific format) and write to it on the fly. I saw some examples where forms are used. But in this case this is not fixed, the report sometimes can be 1 pages or 100 pages depending on the selection made.

Moreover the webserver is running on unix.

Any help/ suggestions is greatly appreciated.
