Reading file summary info

Hi all,

Files such as MS Word, MS Excel, and PDF have summary information such as Title, Subject, and Author. I'm referring to the summary information that you can see when you right click on the file, select 'Properties', and then click on the 'Summary' tab. I'm not referring to the attributes that the file has when it has been loaded into KM. Is there a way that I can read this summary information after the file has been loaded into KM?

Thanks!

    I see that the apache project has a solution for this called POI. The component for reading Title, Author, etc is HPSF:

    http://poi.apache.org/hpsf/index.html

    I'm thinking that this might work except for the fact that the documents that I want to read are in the portal and not just on the filesystem.

    Any thoughts?
