we have many reports in Oracle Reports 6i. But we have problem with printing PDF. Reports6i is very old product and in has old internal PDF interpreter.

"In Oracle Reports 6i, PDF output is supported for US7ASCII, WE8ISO8859P1 and WE8MSWIN1252 only. Any other single-byte, multi-byte or Unicode character set such as UTF8 or WE8ISO8859P15 is not supported. Customers who wish to generate PDF output files in other character sets are recommended to move to BI Publisher."

We need to use WINDOWS-1250 encoding (CZECH), but same problems have users from Arabic countries, or China ...

Generated PDF has corrupted characters...

I can print good PDF using only some virtual PDF printer (PrimoPDF, PDFCreator etc...)

But now I need to find some solution with these features:
1) i need to print PDF directly to some place without user interaction
2) it would by great if it could be some centralized solution without need of installation to every computer (some centralized print server ?)
3) solution for commercial purposes

Or some solution, that could be as part of our application. Something that can handle output of reports and create PDF..

Do you have some ideas?
