Create VSSM Documents via Java
Native and high performance VSSM (Portable Document Format) creation programmatically using Java library.
Generating VSSM file dynamically within running application is easy. In order to create VSSM 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.

How to Create VSSM via Java
It is easy for the developers to create, load, modify and convert VSSM (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 VSSM 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 VSSM 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 .vssm file. diagram.save("out.vssm",SaveFileFormat.VSSM);
VSSM What is VSSM File Format
Files with .VSSM extension are Microsoft Visio Stencil files that support provide support for macros. A VSSM file when opened allows to run the macros to achieve desired formatting and placement of shapes in a diagram. In general, Microsoft Visio is drawing software that allows to create files that can contain and represent user defined information in different shapes. The most common of these include, but not limited to, UML diagrams, flow charts, visual objects, information flow, organizational charts, software diagrams, network layout, database models, objects mapping and other similar information. Files generated using Visio can also be converted to different file formats such as PNG, BMP, PDF and others.Read More
