You need to use a library jar to convert it. There are some free ones available like iText and others that are commercial. Google would be the best, just search "java pdf library"

The AccessingFileFormats wiki page has a bunch of information on the subject. Look into Jakarta POI for converting DOC to text, and JPedal or PDFTextStream for extracting text from PDFs.

By the way, you should make the topic of your posts more descriptive - "guidance" conveys nothing.
