Create VSTX Documents via Java
Native and high performance VSTX (Portable Document Format) creation programmatically using Java library.
Generating VSTX file dynamically within running application is easy. In order to create VSTX 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 VSTX via Java
It is easy for the developers to create, load, modify and convert VSTX (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 VSTX 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 VSTX 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 .vstx file. diagram.save("out.vstx",SaveFileFormat.VSTX);
VSTX What is VSTX File Format
Files with VSTX extensions are drawing template files created with Microsoft Visio 2013 and above. These VSTX files provide starting point for creating Visio drawings, saved as .VSDX files, with default layout and settings. In general, 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. Programs that open VSTX files include Microsoft Visio for Windows and Mac that let you open these files for viewing and editing. It also allows to convert Visio file formats to a number of other formats.Read More
