Pagelayout control in Java exporting multiple page PDF document

I am hoping someone out there can help. I thought this would be easy but it is proving a bit difficult to even start!

I want to use the Pagelayout as it makes it easy to add decorations to the map such as a North indicator and scale bar.

All I want to do is to take multiple extents (which represent a page of A4) and use the Pagelayout to export each extent to the same PDF file.

We are constrained to using Java.

Is there any samples available, am I using the right tool for the job?

ArcObjects, to the best of my knowledge, doesn't support exporting to a multipage pdf.  You could export each layout to its own pdf and then combine these individual pdfs into a single file.  I don't know about java but if you were using .NET then you could use a free 3rd party library such as SharpPDF to create the final pdf file.
