Subject RE: Starting question about PDFBox
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:06:10 GMT
Thanks for the feedback. (Is it appreciated when you thank someone?)

As far as I know, the site I mentioned is the only site which has some
explaining about PDFBox. It was helpful that it pressured me to become
member of this mailing list, ask a question, and be pointed to the SVG
website
(https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/pdfbox/trunk/examples/src/main/java/org/apach
e/pdfbox/examples/).

Indeed, the examples from the source code downloads are the best way to
start.

That site is not really helpful. I've put a comment there three days ago and
it is still in moderation.
http://radixcode.com/pdfbox-example-code-how-to-extract-text-from-pdf-file-w
ith-java/

The only good side of this is that this increases my score on stackoverflow
:-)

use PDFBox 2.0.0 I cannot find any examples. Does anyone know of websites
with some explanation? Or would it be smarter to use PDFBox 1.8.11 (which
also has no example of a working example as far as I could see)?
