Subject RE: Render a PDF in the cocoon form
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2005 11:25:13 GMT
So if I well understood your mind, you want to extract the PDF embedded data
to display them into your cocoon form? Some kind of "reverse xsl-fo"?


Sorry, I don't know any reverse tool for PDF, and especially none doing PDF
to XML conversion. If someone does, I'm interested in too ...

Objet : Render a PDF in the cocoon form


Hi all,


Can anyone help me out in the following issue:-


How do I render a PDF in the cocoon form using byte array as the Input to
the Cocoon form?


The actual requirement is I have a byte array object which has the byte form
of the PDF. The PDF which is remotely located will be read through a
FileReader object into a byte array object and get the byte array object.
Using the contents of the byte array object without writing it again to the
file system I would like to directly render it to the cocoon form and
display the same PDF on the browser. Code snippet would look something
similarly to the one given below. 



            String fileName = "usr1/examples/resources/pdf_Demo.pdf";

            File file = new File (fileName);

            String fileContents = "";

            BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader (new FileReader (file));

                        while ((line = br.readLine()) != null)


                                    fileContents = line;


                        int fileLen = fileContents.length();

                        byte [] fileByte = new byte [fileLen];

                        fileByte = fileContents.getBytes ();


   Now using the file Byte object contents I need to display the PDF in the
cocoon form.
