Somewhere, somehow there needs to be a program to load the document and decode/mark-up the contents.  The Reader is free, should be no problem.  There are other open-source projects to work with that file format, but some programming &/ implementation must be done.  Start here for a Java library for working with the pdf format. http://www.lowagie.com/iText/

Hi,
  From Java Swing u cannot preview a PDF file. There are some pdf readers(not acrobat reader) that will open the pdf file.

Adobe has a Java-based viewer:
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrviewer/main.html

According to the web page:
"Acrobat Viewer can be licensed free to be bundled with Java-related products, or integrated into custom Java solutions through the JavaBean interface. Please read the End User License Agreement for details."

I don't really know anything more than that about it. HTH.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
