Create VSDM Documents via Java
Native and high performance VSDM (Portable Document Format) creation programmatically using Java library.
Generating VSDM file dynamically within running application is easy. In order to create VSDM documents from scratch without requiring MS Office, we’ll use
API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use Diagram API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from
and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.

<dependency> <groupId>com.aspose</groupId> <artifactId>aspose-diagram</artifactId> <version>version of aspose-diagram API</version> <classifier>jdk16</classifier> </dependency>
How to Create VSDM via Java
It is easy for the developers to create, load, modify and convert VSDM (Portable Document Format) within running different reporting applications for data processing in just a few lines of code.
- Include the namespace in your class file
- Create Diagram class instance.
- Access the first page of the diagram.
- Add text in the page.
- Use save method to save the diagram as VSDM file.
Aspose.Diagram for Java supports on all major platforms and Operating Systems. Please make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with Java Runtime Environment for JSP/JSF Application and Desktop Applications.
- Get latest version of Aspose.Diagram for Java directly from Maven .
Following source code shows how to create a VSDM file using C#.
// Create Diagram class instance. Diagram diagram = new Diagram(); // Access the first page of the diagram. Page page = diagram.getPages().get(0); // Add Text shape. Shape shape = page.addText(1, 1, 1, 1, "Test text", "Calibri", "#a5a5a5", 0.25); // Save the Diagram as .vsdm file. diagram.save("out.vsdm",SaveFileFormat.VSDM);
VSDM What is VSDM File Format
Files with VSDM extension are drawing files created with Microsoft Visio application that supports macros. VSDM files are OPC/XML drawings that are similar to VSDX but also provide the capability to run macros when the file is opened. Macros are user defined actions/steps that are developed in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and can be used to perform repeatitive tasks. VSDM file format was introduced with the launch of Microsoft Visio 2013. Visio files are used to create drawings that contain visual objects, flow charts, UML diagram, information flow, organizational charts, software diagrams, network layout, database models, objects mapping and other similar information. Files generated using Visio can also be exported to different file formats such as PNG, BMP, PDF and others.Read More
