I have a requirement to view a PDF file within a given application I'm developing. I've tried several different open source and commercial pure java based PDF viewers and they really don't stack up to Acrobat.

I did find a few commercial products that bridge java and Microsoft COM, but they're crazy expensive and do a whole lot more than I need.

Does anyone have any experience embedding ActiveX controls into swing apps? I'm having trouble finding guides/tutorials on the web.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. The actual dll I'm going after for adobe acrobat is: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\ActiveX\AcroPDF.dll (assuming the default install directory)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
