Have you looked at http://www.plpdf.com/ ?
My experience with generating PDF from Oracle is limited to Perl. (what else :)
Generating PDF's is a non-trivial exercise. The Perl module I used was created by someone else, and I wouldn't want to attempt that from scratch.
Even with a library, generating PDF documents is not very straight forward.
The plpdf product is $600 per database, with a free, but limited, eval version.
Might be worth checking out.
