    Default Merging PDF Files using PDFBox in Sub/Directories


    I am currently trying to create a program that merges all the files in directories and sub-directories (automatically) and rename them according to the directory/sub0directory they are in. I am trying to acheive this using the PDFBox library.

    As of now I have found a script that reads all the files and folders in a directory and sub-directories.

    My problem is that I don't know how to acheive the merging of PDFs (i.e. merging the files and renaming them according to the folder name).

    I found a tutorial on how to merge files with PDFBox here but I need to apply it to do it automatically for all the files in the directories.

    The code that lists all the files and folders is this:

    Java Code:
    public class Main {
      static int spc_count=-1;
      static void Process(File aFile) {
        String spcs = "";
        for (int i = 0; i < spc_count; i++)
          spcs += " ";
          System.out.println(spcs + "[FILE] " + aFile.getName());
        else if (aFile.isDirectory()) {
          System.out.println(spcs + "[DIR] " + aFile.getName());
          File[] listOfFiles = aFile.listFiles();
          if(listOfFiles!=null) {
            for (int i = 0; i < listOfFiles.length; i++)
          } else {
            System.out.println(spcs + " [ACCESS DENIED]");
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        String nam = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\student3\\Desktop\\PDFs";
        File aFile = new File(nam);
    Any help please?

    Thanks & Regards,
