I've been trying to figure out a way to extract a PDF to TXT so I can read
some information from it.
I saw PDFBOX references in the midrange wiki, and several threads in
I downloaded and extracted PDFBox to /qibm/userdata/Java400/ext, copied the
sample program from the wiki, but it gets an error when I try to run it.
This line in the RPG fails:
myDocument = PDDocument_new();
Message ID . . . . . . : RNX0301 Severity . . . . . . . : 50

Java exception "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
org/apache/pdfbox/pdmodel/PDDocument" when calling method "<init>" with
signature "()V" in class "org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.PDDocument".
I managed to get the HSSF stuff working by following the docs, so something
Java works on the system.
This noob would appreciate any help.
