Hello,
Do you need to interpret every kind of PDF file inside Java program? If so, I think you got a big problem.
Let me know if you got an easy solution.

I found a number of promising links by giong to www.google.com and searching for "java pdf". I'm completely unfamiliar with how PDF works, so I can't really offer any insight myself - other than to point out how invaluable google can be as a research tool. Good luck.

Two possibilities:
First: Use ghostscript as external program to print out pdf-files. (Open Source software available for different platforms). (If you use it on a unix-server without display attached use the nodisplay option.)
Second: Download the Acrobat Reader (www.adobe.com) in the java version and use this to print out the files.
