There isn't very much information provided here.

If you are a hardcore programmer and the PDF file is not encrypted then
you can just read the file and look for the text entries and pick those

PDF is basically postscript and not too hard to decode.

Why not just use the PDFBox library and convert the PDF to text using
their capability and then convert to XML from there? You seem to be 90%
of the way there already...
