      The IOException exception occurs when attached pdf feeded into PDFBox.

      The attached pdf (JP.pdf) file include Adobe-Japan1-65534 cmap.
      source code is as below.

      import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
      import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
      import org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.PDDocument;
      import org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.PDPage;
      import org.apache.pdfbox.rendering.ImageType;
      import org.apache.pdfbox.rendering.PDFRenderer;
      import org.apache.pdfbox.text.PDFTextStripper;
      import org.apache.pdfbox.text.TextPosition;
      public class pdfBoxTest {
      	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      		pdfBoxTest sample = new pdfBoxTest();
      		String pdfname = "D:/tmp/jp.pdf";
      		File pdf = FileUtils.getFile(pdfname);
      	public void load(File pdf) throws Exception {
      		PDDocument document = PDDocument.load(pdf);
      		PDFRenderer renderer = new PDFRenderer(document);
      		BufferedImage bufImage = renderer.renderImageWithDPI(0, 300, ImageType.RGB);
      		ImageIO.write(bufImage, "jpg", new File("D:/tmp/jp.jpg"));

      getExternalCMap mehod in CMapParse.class tries to find external CMap, but
      it couldn't find Japan1-65534 and throws exception.

      I know that there is no such a CMap, but it is no problem to open this PDF file,
      so I think it is better not to throw exception and use another CMap.
      I modified source code as below temporarily. it works well.

      protected InputStream getExternalCMap(String name) throws IOException {
            InputStream is = this.getClass().getResourceAsStream(name);
             if(is == null) {
                if(name.startsWith("Adobe-Japan1")) {
                   name = "Adobe-Japan1-1";
                } else if(name.startsWith("Adobe-Korea1")) {
                   name = "Adobe-Korea1-1";
                is = this.getClass().getResourceAsStream(name);
                if(is == null) {
                   throw new IOException("Error: Could not find referenced cmap stream " + name);
             return is;

      But it is not essential one.
      If possible态I would like to ask you to modify source code not to throw exception if
      it cannot find Cmap.

      I found another Korean pdf file, it includes Adode-Korea1-3 Cmap.

      Please refer to attached file.
