Good Day Paul -
You might want to habe a look at the iText PDF library. The PdfReader
class can read and assemble document pages I believe. The library
also comes with a tool called "concat_pdf" (a command line utility)
which can assemble documents. I have used it before and found it to
work very well. From the site:
This class can be used from the commandline to concatenate existing
arguments: the filenames of the PDF documents you want to concatenate,
followed by the filename of the destination file.
Command line example:
java -cp itext.jar com.lowagie.tools.concat_pdf Chap0101.pdf
Chap0102.pdf Chap0103.pdf result.pdf
