    Looking for a java document (html, pdf, doc) viewer - LINUX

    666757
      Hi all,

      I would like to use some existing java or non-java product to display or embed pdf, html, and doc files in my java GUI application.

      I have been able to do this in windows by leveraging active x and using a java to active-x bridge.

      I now need to do this in linux. I don't care if this is done through a purely java technology or maybe a technology that allows me to pull in file-specific applications (like open office or firefox) or embed files into my java GUI application.

      Has anyone done a similar thing? What technologies exist for this? How easy is it?

      Please let me know.

      Thanks in advance.
