Hi

Hope somebody out there can help me out with this problem.

I developing a small document management system for a coursework project using java servlets and jsps. I have got as far letting the user upload the documents (pdf,txts,jpgs, any type...), view and download them.

What I want it, when the user views the documents list, (before downloading) it is possible to generate the a thumbnail of the actual file? e.g. thumbnail of its contents? This is needs to be done for any type of file not just images. Does anyone have any idea?
