Configuring OCR in Alfresco - Alfresco Community 5.2

Hi,

I am successfully configured OCR with my alfresco (windows installation). But, it only working for PNG, TIFF, JPG & GPEG. But i need it for PDF extension also because most of scanned files are in pdf format.

My tesseract-ocr-transform-context.xml is,

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC '-//SPRING//DTD BEAN//EN' 'http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd'>

I changed it into this including another bean (red colored),
