      Description

      Hello,

      I have a problem with text extraction.
      The problem is not enough memory in VM during the text extraction!

      My Code:
      String pdfFile = "D:\testfolder\test1fd9a_test.pdf"; //size of file 168 KB
      PDDocument document = PDDocument.load(pdfFile, true);

      PDFTextStripper stripper = null;
      try {
      stripper = new PDFTextStripper();
      stripper.setSortByPosition(true);
      stripper.writeText(document, outputWriter);
      } catch () {
      }

      You get an error:
      java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
