Hi,

Could you please explain your use-case bit more? 

If your question is around "Html to PDF Generation", then please have a look at this post:

// AEM has a built in rewriter that automatically renders a page as a PDF through Apache FOP (with composition defined in XSL) whenever the extension .pdf is requested.  Creating a script in a template component with the name pdf.<script extension>, such as pdf.jsp, can override this, but then the pdf must be manually created and delivered though a library such as Apache PDFBox.  This document instructs you how to use the out of the box functionality of CQ to configure the PDF rewrite.

Should work with 6.x as well. In the path picker, you can provide the path to a PDF file. You can also specify external paths to PDF files. Did you try this out in 6.x? 

Let us know if you encounter problems.
