Hello Friends

I've tried various open source PDF viewers as listed below;

  • http://www.mupdf.com/
  • http://code.google.com/p/android-pdf/
  • http://code.google.com/p/droidreader/
  • http://code.google.com/p/apv/

  • These all are using JNI to render PDF.
    I want some Java Only solution. Is there any Java APIs available for PDF viewing? I want to use it in my Android app.

    Hey. I had the same problem with this. What I ended up doing was leveraging google reader. You can pass in the URL of PDF and it will display nicely. You can download the app for free here. Otherwise, just require adobe as a dependency. - Steven
