Is there an open sourc/ commercial software which can perform automatic content analysis (to produce wishful summaries) in a large collection of pdf documents which have tagged meta-data for easy classification? What is the technology Google uses to parse web-hosted pdf and rank them?

I'm unsure what Google uses, but it's possible to read and create PDF documents server-side with a software component such as ABCpdf.NET. This requires some knowledge of programming in ASP or ASP.NET (Active Server Pages) for Microsoft IIS servers, or PHP for Apache web servers.
