Topic: PDF to Text open source library?

Well, hi to all. I am new in .pdf development and recently I took a project from my university as my last cemester practice. It's about recognizing multi-language text from .pdf files.

I took a look in the PDF Reference document but the format is rather complicated and unfortunately I don't have time to prog the text extraction myself. So I was wondering if there's an open source library in Java or C++ that'll help me concentrate in the recognition part.

I also have a question. Is there a way to identify the codepage after the extraction? Something like the codepage and lang tags of html?
