We are looking for some converter, which can convert Microsoft Wort (RTF) documents to PDF.
Preferably working in Java, however if not availavle then it can be written in any language however it should be possible to trigger convertion from within Java Desktop application.
Let say we first store the WORD document (saved as RTF) as a file or in computer memory then we start converter which converts this file and place into a file or to computer RAM.
During convertion it should be possible to set also standard PDF parameters (e.g. possibility or not to copy content of the PDF file).
The solution should be royalty free and should not posses any third party rights.
We can consider also that someone just lead us to some other owner of the solution (a company) to which we shall pay fee for buying the rights of using the software. In this case the maximum fee to third party should be not higher than 500 USD.
I is impotant that solution should be embedded with our application and should not require installation of any additional software on use side.
If there is no converter available for RTF documents, then we als can consider buying converter for dod, docx or WORD xml file type (as a source) for convertion.
We will however preffer RTF type file.
I would like to add some comments to bidding freelancers:
1. iText is not a good solution becasue it is not really free. For commercial applications it is really expensive solution
2. Apache PDFBox is in fact not ready solution and if you read careffuly notes from their page, they are looking for someone who could START development of this solution
3. PDFSharp looks that it is really open source and free, however if you read carrefully their abbilities they are saying that PDFSharp cannot be used to convert RTF to PDF and that they are not going to add this functionality in future
