Welcome to the Ranch, Mostafa.

There is a project on Github that aims to provide what you are looking for.
What they do is convert the pdf document into JavaScript instructions, and let your browser execute that JavaScript.
The project does not have a release at this moment. They are looking for contibutors. If you are interested, you can offer your help.

Than convert them to a format that does not require it.

I have already visited that website before. When I tried to visit demo it had lots of js errors.
Is there any released and free js reference for that?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
