It's since some years that i build PDF files "Server Side" from Lotus Domino applications both on Notes Client and Web without using any extra commercial application.The actual Lotus Symphony hasn't the full support of OpenOffice API so i am sure that on the future it will be in that way :-) The goal could be a perfect integration also on the designer side of the OpenOffice/LotusSymphony PDF engine that will allow the native export of any Notes data on PDF format.
The COM support of OpenOffice API allows you make lots of things but i wish that there will be a real support with special Java/Lotusscript native funcion one day.

hooking up the iText open source PDF library classes to DXL works great for me.

Yes, iText it's a very nice PDF library, i use it too on my applications :-) But i can assure that using both OpenOffice & iText togheter allows you to have more and more power. That's why i wish that IBM will add finally a "Native" PDF support

I believe that PDF support should be native in Domino. This is one of those "no brainers". Companies constantly have to create "secure documents" and bypass Domino many times. Yes, I've done iText too. My point is about consumability by the masses of Notes/Domino developers. If you want to do something different that is fine, at lease have some basic functionality to print to PDF and forward the file somewhere.
