    There's no standard way to do this. You should check your C++ compiler documentation if such option exists.

    ... which is very unlikely.

    What you should do is learn about JNI (the Java Native Interface) and embedding a virtual machine in your program.

    Which in my opinion is overkill. There must be a PDF generation library for C or C++ out there.
    All the buzzt!
