Topic: PDF Forms for Remote Sales

I have a client that would like a PDF based order
entry system for remote sales people who can
connect to the internet, but not nessarliy when they
are taking the order. I've seem some good tools on
this site for servlet based solutions and pulling the
data from PDF forms and entering it into a
database.

What the client wants is a form that looks like their
existing paper form. To be able to autofill name
and address when taking and order. Then at the
end of the day upload these to a web accessable
database.

What sort of tools could I use on the client end that
would be free or cheap for the end user. I can write
a java based form that will generate a PDF, but
looking for a simpler solution.

Any ideas?
