@bhagchand , which kind of data API will return?

If it is just text, going to be very simple and you have lots of option available(paid or free). But if it is HTML, you have very limited options specially when it comes to css application for styling. Simple styling is very easy but converting entire html to pdf is tough. some time JSOUP is also handy in html to pdf conversion but based on your use case.s

vailable options are OpedPDf, flying saucer, itext an all. 

 

Hope this helps

Hi Umesh, 

 

When we submit form then that form data will be download as pdf from the aem servlet. I have tried the openPDF  with the code 

screenshot-products.fileformat.com-2023.02.22-20_20_14.png

 

But there was error due to creating object in service 

Document document = new Document();

 

Please help to suggest any way to resolve this issue

 

Thanks
