Osmosis is a tool that was developed internally at CEB that leverages both Apache PDFBox and Apache POI. It is used extensively to convert PDF documents of all types into editable PowerPoint documents and/or HTML5/SVG content. If you have the PDF but can no longer access the original all hope is not lost - a tool like Osmosis can help recover your content. There are challenges in pulling structure out of any PDF and these will be explored. There will also be a discussion of other tools available from Apache projects like POI, OpenOffice, and ODF Toolkit.
