Hi,

I want to develop a universal document viewer. I should be able to view different types of files like office, pdf, images etc.

I donot have any idea how to do this. Can anybody please guide me.

Thanks,
Mangala

I predict that you will end up not doing this due to the difficulties of handling structured document formats. Much better to use java.awt.Desktop.open() to make use of any installed applications that are tailored towards individual formats.
