There is nothing built into JSP for this.

I know there are quite a few libraries out there for working with PDFs from a Java app (Most of the ones I've seen are for creating, not reading, PDFs).

Try Googling with "PDF JAVA PARSE" or some variation.

Note: Often the text in a PDF is just part of an image. In this case you won't be able to extract it.
