    Default how to make a tool to search for a phrase in PDF files in a folder?

    Hi all,
    please I need a guidance for making a simple tool to be able to search for a word or sentence in some PDF ebooks or files
    in a specific folder in your computer then it saves lots of time to open and search each ebook or file one by one.

    thanks for your helps.

    What do you have so far? What are you stuck on exactly? Proper use of the forum is to show the code of what you have done and then ask a specific question. No one is going to just write an app for you. Please post what you have so far and I will more than glad to offer up some advice.

    Hope it helps!

    :) thanks you are right but the problem is I am now doing beginner of programming
    using Java and right now working on OOP to be familiar with it. but my question is that
    you all as advanced user, how it is possible? e.g. may be you just introduce me to the
    required Libraries for such project and also a required Class of few lines to be used in.
    e.g. if I ask about how to make a popup window or the like, you might say for Library
    go be familiar with SWING package. the same I want for this question.

    I think it makes sense.
