    Unanswered: database confusion with pdf extraction

    I need to get about 350 pages of product information on a website. There is a table and picture for each product... my question is.. would it be best to extract all the pdf product catalog pages to XML and the somehow link them in the database.... or should I extract all the PDF info in their own tables? ... im guessing you have the most control and versatility if all the product information was organized nicely in tables.. seems like alot of work

    what is the easiest way to get many pdf product pages onto a website..?

    Thanks

    What exactly entails putting your pages into the website?

    Are we talking extracting each page as it's own file and linking to it, or are we talking a full blown online catalogue with search, index, preferences etc etc
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    yes.

    i found this product called Jade that extracts the text and tables out of the PDF into tab delimited content... i wonder if this is the right route?

    what are your thoughts..? Thanks
