Is this one time or regularly?

Anyway.. there are lots of online web applications which will allow you to do so...

Try Google Docs, Zoho etc..
By the way Google Docs has APIs too, if you want to programatically do that.

I'm not aware of a Java library that lets you do this. PDFs are meant for viewing and printing, not for getting layout information out of them.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
