It is hard to extract layout information from a PDF; PDFs are meant for display and print, not so much further processing. I predict you will end up not doing this.

If you have a lot of time on your hands you could study the source code of the PDFRenderer project - it display PDFs in a Swing GUI, so obviously it knows how to extract layout information.

But maybe you can tell us what prompted this question, and we may be able to suggest alternatives.
