I have not used iText. Looks interesting.
However, I have used PDFTK (www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/) as an interface to allow me to fill in PDF forms from Apex. I won't claim that it was painless to set up the code to do it, but it works fairly well for me.
Thanks Matthew, I had a look but seems like I have use command line to execute the process. I want to generate from PL/SQL. Basically load the jar file to the database and generate from pl/sql and store the pdf in database table.

I want to generate from PL/SQL.My package does. Mind you -- I have to make use of a host command to perform the actual integration. When a process 'prints' to a PDF, it supplies the PDF form to be filled in, the specific fields to be filled in, and the values for the fields. I write these values out to an FDF file for the appropriate PDF form on the OS, then call PDFTK via a host command to integrate the blank PDF and the newly-created FDF into a 'filled' PDF form. I then email the completed PDF file to the user that requested it.
