I need to read the content of a PDF document, using a java program and use its content for storage as well as display purposes. The contents of the PDF document are in a tabular format.

Please recommend products/utilities available for reading the contents of a PDF document.

You may have a look at this project. You may find a tutorial on how to read a pdf file in the same page.

Hope that helps,
