Both Adobe.com and pdfgo.com make pure Java PDF viewers, however they do not provide source. My research didn't find any open source PDF viewers.
However, you may be able to use a Java disassembler (Jbuilder, Mocha) to view the structure of the pdfgo.com version to give you some ideas about architecture.
Sorry can't be of more help.

We use a tool called Sitraka JClass that allows for the pure java creation of pdf's. I do believe, however, they have pure java api's for viewing pdf's as well. The tool my be expensive. www.sitraka.com
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
