if you're looking for a PDF Report generator JasperReports is your best friend. It generates reports based on a datasource of Java Objects (this is the easy way, but you could use XML, SQL queries, ...).
If you're interested on this option, take a look at gvNIX Addon Web Reports. This addon gives you, with a simple command, all the configurations and components you need to generate a report, you just need to customize the data recovery method and the report template.
