Creating a thumbnail image from a pdf file

I am trying to create a pdf gallery with thumbnails of each, generated dynamically.  I am using CF MX7, so I do not have access to the cfpdf tag.  Are they any other ways or plugins to generate thumbnails of pdf files dynamically?

It's not a CF add-on per-se.  Any one of their products with a java sdk could be used from CF.  They're not cheap though .. ;-)

These are the others libs I mentioned before

I've not done it myself.  But you could certainly use any java lib with that capability, like JPedal, PdfBox, JPDFImages or use Ghostscript and run it from cfexecute.  Obviously you could purchase adobe's libraries too ;-)

What libraries would those be?  I have no knowledge of any libraries or addons, so any you can point me to would be very much appreciated.
