i am able to get all the text of pdf on the command prompt .

now i have to extract one particular string or may be more based on the requirement into an ordinary text document .

for example :
sample.pdf is my pdf file and have a data "javaranch" in some location in the pdf (currently it has got displayed on the command prompt)

now i should be able to extract that string "javaranch" into an ordinary text file /document .

i searched for the function to get a particular word into text doc in the pdfbox api in that PDFTextStripper but not able to find one
