Hi

      Can anybody tell which is the best pdf generator in rails.There are
many like

    * HTMLDOC
    * PdfWriter

    * Ruby FPDF
    * JasperReports
    * PDF Form Fill
    * PDFlib and PDFlib-Lite
    * Rfpdf

I have tried

http://www.princexml.com/

It is fantastic and I think the best of my knowledge.But not free
software.Can anybody suggest an equivalent opensource

Sijo

There is no equivalent open source software to prince. However they do offer a free license if it’s just for your server I believe.

I did a big writeup on using prince with rails here:

Err my bad - personal license for use on your own computer. So you can download/use it just for your own use.
