Sure, you can do it, but you'd use some PDF java api to do it:

for example:
you can use this PDF API: http://www.lowagie.com/iText/docs.html (free :))
You can use com.lowagie.text.pdf.PdfReader  class to read any page you want by invoke method:
   byte[]    getPageContent(int pageNum)

refer to: http://itextdocs.lowagie.com/docs/com/lowagie/text/pdf/PdfReader.html

Enjoy :)
