I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not, but here goes.

I am working on a website where I want to be able to host PDF files, but I don't want the viewers of the website to have to download acrobat or any other software.

I came across the com.adobe.acrobat.Viewer which in theory should work. Its from adobe's website anyway.

I tried to take their samplereader file and run it as an applet inside of a jsp file and I get the page to come up showing the applet window, and it says "Loading Applet" but then just hangs there, and doesn't do anything. The pdf file I was trying to view was 7k, so I don't think it was a memory issue with trying to read the file.

Has anyone been able to successfully display a pdf file in a browser without acrobat reader or other reader?

I'm looking for a java solution.
