my mission is to locate a certain word inside a pdf file and insert an image next to this word

if anyone can recommend me on some api's or examples i will be very grateful.

Thanx ahead


I know this api and I'm working alot with it... but i haven't found a way to do it with this api...

small wonder. PDF files are readonly, so you can't change them.

Try iText for PDF processing.

I do remember any search functions in iText...
However it should be possible if you use PdfDictionary object as described in chapter 18 of iText book. Only problem is you have to get around cross-referencing of PDF document. Very-very dirty work
