Hi there,
really depends on what you're generating, have done this with apache FOP (
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/) for an on the fly product catalog
generation thing, and with itext (http://www.lowagie.com/iText/) for simple
pdf stamping type stuff both java-y bits, fop is probably the easiest to
start but the hardest to learn.
for pdf based report generation, jasper server is excellent
