Hi,
There is no official PDF component in Talend.
Here is a custom component tPDFToText wriiten by Talend community user and shared on Talend Exchange which is used to convert a PDF to text file.

Thank you for the reply..
The component tPDFtoText is quite static.
It takes only one file at a time and also have to specify the output file name in the component setting.
Any way to make it dynamic!!!
