How to convert a pdf to an image?

Using pdfbox displays an error:

import java.awt
import javax`


Based on the following code:

imageType = BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB; //need to specifies java.awt
String[] formats = ImageIO.getReaderFormatNames(); //need to specifies javax

Answer

Finally i found the solution. We can't use awt with Android, so, finally go for the pdf viewver lib on http://sourceforge.net/projects/andpdf/files/

Find out the apk and also source for pdf to image.

Here is myclass to convert pdf to image:
