Mid-term Evaluation Date:
15th of September 2010

To render PDF into images I will plane to use java2D. Javaswinglabs provide PDF rendering library called Java PDF render (https://pdf-renderer.dev.java.net/). This library has a class called PDFRenderer (https://pdf-renderer.dev.java.net/nonav/demos/latest/javadoc/index.html) and it turns a set of PDF Commands from a PDF page into an image. I will do render the document pages-by-page, then contents shown to the user. This method is more efficient and accurate. Ajax is used to load the content asynchronously.
Step 1: Initial Planning and Starting Implementation
I will make a rough design and start working on the code.
Step 2: Do the Implementation Continually
I would work on the rest of code. Deliverable(s): mid evaluation.
Step 3: Improvements and Testing
Modifications or improvements suggested at the mid evaluation would be completed in this step. Start to test component.
Step 4: Final Product and Documents
