    Thumbs up How read A PDF File in j2me

    Hi All,
    I need to read a pdf file in my nokia 5130 Series 40 device. Is there any Reader or Application for this purpose.

    Thanks.

    I don't think that there are any good ones (writing one in Java and on a very limited-resource - processor, run-time memory - would be challenging, indeed).

    Some web service that shows a PDF file pages as images might work... if you find one. Not very practicaly, though (and could be expensive due to the data transfer required).

    Anyway, search getjar.com and perhaps also Ovi Store, in case you find something useful. (E.g., an app that extracts just the text from a PDF file, if that's enough.)

    That app, even it is written in Java, doesn't read PDF files. It is a text file reader only. At least according to the description, which says, that one has to first use a PC to extract the text on a PC, and save the text to a separate file on the PC, and then copy the text file to the phone. Then this app can read and display the text file. Not a very practical process for most situations where you might want to read a PDF file on a phone.
