Currently my team came across a new and nice solution to convert MS files to PDF using Java. It uses a package called OfficeTools.
I think it can also help others. Code is very clean:

import officetools.OfficeFile;

FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(new File("test.doc")); // works with xls also
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(new File("test.pdf"));

OfficeFile f = new OfficeFile(fis,"localhost","8100", false);


You can obtain officetools.jar from this guy's website: dancrintea.ro/doc-to-pdf/

If you are using other solutions, it would be nice to share.

I normally use openoffice for that. Of course, I'm not sure what commandline arguments might be needed if I wanted to do batch processing.
