I was wondering if anyone has tried to do display PDFs in MT4j yet. Anybody?
If not, I was wondering how you would go about doing this. I would like to find a solution that takes advantage of the vector graphics in PDFs, rather than converting into an image. The pdf-render library seems like a good starting point (https://pdf-renderer.dev.java.net/). The most straightforward thing would be to try to embed a Swing object into there, but I’ve heard there might be some stability issues. Any other ideas?
Other than just getting a PDF page display, it’ll be a matter of building a MT4j widget that’ll be capable of flipping through the pages of a PDF. That’ll come later though…
Thanks for your time!
