Thanks for your reply,
by taking a look at the itext library it looks like it's perfect for
managing PDFs, but i'm looking for a way to RENDER a PDF on screen, i need
to build a widget that is able to render a PDF on screen.

directly from the site:
iText isn’t a PDF viewer, nor can iText be used to print a PDF, but the
PdfReader class can give you access to the objects that form a PDF document
and to	the the content stream of each page. This content stream can be
parsed and in some cases, you can convert a page to plain text.
