Are there any open sources that convert PDF to TIFF and also allow merge of PDFs?

If by merging you mean taking pages from two PDF files and combining them in some order in a new PDF, then most libraries, e.g. iText, can do that.

Yes, that was my requirement.
Thanks Ulf.
What about the conversion from PDF to TIFF?

If you google for "pdf2tiff" you'll find a number of options, probably none of them in Java, though. Some seem to be command line tools, so they should be usable through Runtime.exec.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
