I committed some code for populating pre-generated PDFs with fields. If you want to try it out,check out the trunk and compile the PDF-module and make a xhtml-page lik
<p:field name="person.name" value="Me, myself and I"/>
(of course EL-expressions are more useful)
Grab the sample form here,stick it in the webapp and point the URL on it.
What features would be useful you in this context?
