jPDFText is a Java library to extract text from PDF documents. PDF documents can be processed to extract the textual content for archiving, storage, searching, or indexing. jPDFText is built on top of Qoppa's proprietary PDF technology, so there is no need for any third party software or drivers. Main Features: loading PDF documents from files, network drives, URLs, or input streams; extracting text; and extracting words as a vector of Strings. It is written entirely in Java, which allows your application to remain platform independent. There is no need to install or configure additional drivers or software when deploying.
