Java interface for PDF Rendering?
Before I go and wrack my brains to create a renderer of PDF's in Java in hopes to put it on the Kindle-2 ... Is there some glaring limitation or restriction that I am missing that has prevented the far smarter and more resourceful minds from doing this already? I am struggling with all of the PDF to mobi/prc converters since they all (MobiCreator and Calibre) fail to get the indexing or the table of contents right.
Put another way, is there anything that prevents a resourceful hacker from adding a Java 'booklet' to the Kindle's environment?

1. I have reverse-engineered the Java booklet interface. Please see my previous post on this forum.
2. Kindle is using Adobe's Acrobat Mobile SDK. It is called through a JNI interface. I have reverse-engineered most of the functions & parameters. Unfortunately, Amazon didn't implement anything to read the TOC in Java, so you'd have to call them from the Adobe library, which is a C++ class library.
3. TOC could be implemented with PDR file hacking. I've done this with some code long time ago. But it has some bugs and I don't have time to fix them...
