Topic: Validating PDF Syntax

Hi,

I'm relatively new to the PDF format.

I am trying to embed an image in jpeg format into a pdf document. I read the documentation, looked at samples, and am quite sure that my syntax is correct. However, when I try opening the produced pdf document in Acrobat Reader, I get a trying to repair message and the image doesn't show up.

Now, obviously, something is wrong. But the question is WHAT is wrong. Is there any sort of (free) tool that could check a pdf document and tell me exactly what is wrong with it?

Just for the record, I am modifying someone else's custom Java code that successfully produces text only pdf documents.
