We want to convert PLT file to PDF file in the background. Our appplication is java based and we are looking for any tool which we can use in the background which provides command line interface to convert PLT to PDF.

The PLT file extension is a vector-based plotter file developed by Autodesk, Inc. to contain plotting details from a certain CAD or computer-aided design file.

We only want lite weight only PLT to PDF converter tool, We don't want full fledged all file converter.

Any suggetion for any jar, exe or dll will be much appriciated.
