I have written a simple servlet which writes the submitted pdf to the c drive of the server. I have written the instructions in the pdf document which can be found here Click here to access the pdf
Download the war file
Deploy it on your server
Design your form with a submit button configured to submit “PDF” and pointing to the url
The url should be of the following format
in my case it was http://ginger:8080/SaveToFile/SavePdf. Where ginger:8080 is my server and port no.
Save the form and hit the submit button
The form will get submitted to the servlet which writes the pdf to the c drive of the server
Let me know if you need any more help
