Convert TeX and LaTeX

TeX converter API Solution for Java.

Aspose.TeX is an API to the Object TeX system. For details on TeX, refer to Introduction to TeX . Developers can easily convert TeX and LaTeX to PDF, XPS, PNG, JPG, BMP and TIFF formats by integrating the API for Java. Below is a code example that programmers can enhance and integrate into LaTeX solutions.

The API solution for Java here lets you convert TeX and LaTeX files programmatically, but you may find it useful to see and try cross-platform Converters developed using the .NET version of the API. Here you can also find applications to create and edit TeX files, tables, graphics, to merge multiple TeX files into one PDF file, etc.

The API supports BMP, JPEG, PDF, SVG, TIFF, XPS, and PNG as output formats. To convert TeX files to Images, PDF, XPS, or SVG, follow next steps:

  1. Instantiate the TeXOptions class.
  2. Specify the file system working directory for the output/input using the setOutputWorkingDirectory() / setInputWorkingDirectory() methods.
  3. Initialize save options using the BmpSaveOptions , PngSaveOptions , TiffSaveOptions JpegSaveOptions or PdfSaveOptions , SvgSaveOptions , or XpsSaveOptions ) class. The last class is the default.
  4. Instantiate the TeXJob() class, passing the appropriate output device ( ImageDevice , PdfDevice , SvgDevice , or XpsDevice ) as an argument, and run the conversion using the run() method.
