Hi and thanks again.
I am still researching, but I am leaning over Java. I found two things:
1) PDFBox which lets me read all the PDF data. Since the main thing my app needs to do is searching, the most important part is to get the textdata, rather than displaying the PDF (but they told me that if it could also display the pdf would be good
2) Lucene which is a project that lets you index and search any kind of data. Plus, I read that PDFBox has already a converter for Lucene (so it adapts directly to de Lucene format).
I am going to test this things today to see if they are good to go.
I have also read something about JPedal for showing the PDF, but I still have no idea whatsoever (i'll keep you posted ).
I do agree with tuxdev that have is kinda top-heavy but, oddly enough, I cant find a way of deploying an app for linux which doesnt requires anything (curses are forbiden for me, since they have to be GUI).
I have also tried RealBasic which generates a binary for every major OS (Windows, GNU/Linux, MacOSX) and it worked, but the IDE is just a trial and it is too expensive for me
But it was kinda strange since I build a linux binary from Windows (ie the IDE had no idea which Linux I had installed) and magicaly worked.
Well thanks again for spending your time in this post. When I find a solution (or give in, or still open to new ideas
) I let you know.
