Hello and thank you for your valuable time. I'll get right to it - I have PDFs and I need to extract certain text elements from it. Not all elements, just certain ones. I do know the x/y/width/height of the elements I need. I want to be able to make one or more calls from my Java program to a Java program to get the text. I was thinking there would be something like the SDK that's available now from Adobe but one that would be for Java and not one that's specific to Windows (VB, CPP, etc.). Does something like this exist from Adobe or do I need to use something like PDFBox/iText?
Adobe Reader doesn't have a Java API.
