Can someone please tell me that how does some pdf readers are able to search the text inside their pdf, I have made a reader that supports pdf, but I am not unable to search text in the pdf?

What I have tried:

I tried to use OCR and text encoding but there is a processing time required for it, further without I am unable to understand how to search for exact text inside a pdf, before converting it into any text file, it should be the same original pdf

You will need some kind of pdf libraries to do so, check this out Open Source PDF Libraries in Java[^]
