We are trying to develope a java-application, which converts the adobe form objects into xml. We went through the couple of websites which say about converting pdf to xml, but with no luck. If somebody can help us in this matter, it would be appreciated. We are developing APIs in java to convert pdf to xml.

Here We need to read the data from the PDF .For Example ,think that pdf contain s a Label & a Text box (with values), so we need read the exact values.... through some JAVA API ??? ..



Thanks in advance,

I'm not aware of any Java API that can read PDF files in this level of detail. The best you can do is extract the text, but images, forms and their layout are not accessible.
