Working in xpages..... (or could do it in Lotusscript)
 
I have a document. The document has a couple PDF's attached to it. And a few fields filled in. I need to create one PDF file that :
 
(a) uses the few fields filled in to generate a cover page in PDF format;
 
(b) scoop up the PDF attachments and append them to the cover page, making one large single PDF file.

 If you are looking for open source tools versus subscription/paid libraries then I would suggest PDFBOX from Adobe.

Hey Paul, thanks

 
Say I was willing to pay for a tool that didn't require me to learn Java in the next 30 days? Do you know of any?

 Well, unfortunately even the paid ones are Java Libraries that require some knowledge of Java to implement / use.


 I don't have any experience with any others as I always use the ones from APACHE.
