We’re currently developing an Android application which we want to port to BlackBerry Playbook. This app renders pdf files and displays them on screen. For example, we're displaying an searchable index; clicking a specific index entry should display a specific page within a PDF. However, this utilizes native code so cannot be ported to Blackberry.
1. Is there any third party library available which can display PDFs on Blackberry?
2. Does any third party library allow PDFs to be opened at a specific page?
Appreciate any ideas, links or suggestions!

So BlackBerry don't want a collection of legal apps hitting the market.
There must be a BlackBerry employee hiding here who might have a few ideas?

I think the problem is you asked this question in the Java forum, not the Android Runtime forum here:
I will ask for this question to be moved.

If you have existing iOS codes already, you should go to the native/cascades forums. There are plenty of people on those 2 forums asking the pdf question.
Thereotically, you can just invoke the built-in pdf reader --- but it may or may not have all the index and search functions. Or you can try to port open source c/c++ pdf libraries yourself.
