Subject Re: pdfbox not working for my pdf file.
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2009 06:57:19 GMT

I've been testing PDFBox on a number of different (mathematical) PDF files, and my experience
shows that PDFBox works in principle on all PDF files that are not image based, with some
specific errors depending on the the type and creation of the file. If you create a PDF file
by binding images together then this file can't be read by PDFBox.
An easy test is to try to copy text from your file using any PDF reader, e.g. Adobe's. If
you can copy text, PDFBox should be able to read it.
