Any ideas on how to convert pdf to html programmatically? in java or .net.
Softwares are infinite.
I want to develop my own component for such conversion. What could be the possible leads to start on?

Please advise.

Few things can be done with a PDF file once it has ben created, and no library exists that can extract the formatting information that would enable you to create an HTML presentation of it.

But since there are browser plugins that launch Acrobat Reader within the browser for displaying PDFs, what would your project do that Reader can't?
