If we want to just read (not create or update) PDF documents, I assume that Aspose.Pdf.Kit is the correct component to use?
Is there any "getting started" documentation which gives an overview of the features, where to start with which class to use for reading the document, what features can be extracted, etc.?
I guessed that "PDFExtractor" might be the place to start, but the documentation for this class contains a comment that:
This is Beta version of PdfExtractor. Some features may not be supported well and we may be not able to fix them in short time.
so that confused me a bit.
I have downloaded the eval copy of Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java. I have done a similar exercise with Aspose.Words for Java, and got that working quickly, but that came with example code and I found it easier to understand how to use it.
