Project Description

I require a java command line program to scan a PDF and then add 5 bookmarks to the PDF.

The 5 bookmarks that I want to add are xIntroduction, xMethods, xResults, xDiscussion, xBibliography. These bookmarks should correspond to the headings in the PDF heading of the same name(s).

The program will need to address the following:

a) Multiple headings for each possible bookmark. For example “Introduction” in the PDF may be “Introduction” or “Background”. I will provide a list of possible alternate headings.

b) Note: Some of the PDFs may already have BookMarks. Some PDFs will have no bookmarks.

c) Many of the PDFs have an abstract section that may include the same headings (i.e. introduction, methods, results, discussion). The bookmarks should not be part of the abstract section.

d) Most likely the headings are in a larger font and separated from additional text.

I will send a zip file of 20 PDFs that you can use for testing. I will then test the program on 10 PDFs.

If it helps, I work with pdfbox 1.8.2.

Deliverables for this project is a java command line program and documented code.
