    PDF support in JAVA


    Hi,

    I'm looking for an API that will let me opening, drawing and printing Acrobat
    PDF files. And for the drawing in my applet I would like to have some control
    over it, like drawing some vectoriel shape I made.

    Thank you in advance for any help...

    If you want to display any PDF file you get, then check out Adobe's PDF
    specifications at
    http://partners.adobe.com/asn/develo...S/pdfspec.pdf. After you
    see this, you may decide you don't want to do that much programming.

    Adobe also produces a free product called Acrobat Viewer. Here's an extract
    from their site...

    What is Adobe Acrobat Viewer?
    Adobe Acrobat Viewer is a Java application that lets you view Portable
    Document Format (PDF) files on any system where a Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
    is installed. If you already have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you won't need
    Acrobat Viewer. But if there is no version of Acrobat Reader available for
    your system, and you have a JVM installed, then Acrobat Viewer is for you.
    Software developers can use Acrobat Viewer as an application or JavaBean.
    The Acrobat Viewer can be licensed for free to be bundled with Java-related
    products, or integrated into custom Java solutions through the JavaBean
    interface.

    See http://www.adobe.com/products/acrviewer/ for info.

    A PDF library from Etymon Systems (www.etymon.com) is very useful
    for producing PDF files from scratch or for parsing and modifying existing
    ones - it does not provide a viewer bean however
