Forgive me if this has been covered in previous discussions.  

What options are their in auto-populating a PDF file with data 
captured via a form on a website.  I need to collect data and then 
interpret the data and place it in a PDF file for later printing.  
Capturing the data to a database is no problem... the creation of 
the formatted PDF is not so easy. 

Form Tools and Tab Merge PDF via :  

works well on my local server but requires loading of Java on the 
web server which presents a problem to me. 

Any similar, or better tools out there?

I think I can use Acrobat forms, but I prefer data capture via a 
HTML/PHP or equivalent method.
