    Default Read Tamil Text Pdf From Java

    Hi All,

    I am just trying to read content from a pdf file via java. The Pdf File is in the format of editable text. so i can copy the entire content manually.

    I have done this using PDFBox, but the thing what is, i have another language content also in the PDF Format. I cant get the exact content.

    When i am reading a normal English PDF file , i can get the entire Content... but when i am reading another language file its displaying like this "???????????"

    This is my code

    Java Code:
    public String getPdfText(String fileName) throws IOException {
            StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
            PDDocument doc = null;
            try {
                doc = PDDocument.load(fileName);
                PDFTextStripper stripper = new PDFTextStripper();
                stripper.setStartPage( 1 );
                stripper.setEndPage( Integer.MAX_VALUE );
                stripper.writeText(doc, sw);
            } finally {
                 if (doc != null) {
           return sw.toString();
    please help

    Thanks in advance
