Default Dynamic PDF Document Generation

Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice on Dynamic PDF Document Generation from java/ j2ee web apps.

What I'd like to do is take data from a form or database (perhaps in XML format) and include it in a PDF document which will be returned to the user.

I've come accross a number of tools, but am having trouble deciding between them. Eg.

-iText

-Apache FOP

-AurigaDoc (uses FOP)

-DocBook

-Some other XML - XSLT method ?


Which are the easiest to integrate? allow the most flexibility in generating PDF? offer best performance?



(It's for an academic project so I can't afford to buy any commercial software)
