This information is helpful for the decision making for the conversion process. Using the powerful Aspose.PDF for Android via Java API, you can get all of it. To get file-specific information about a EPUB file, first get the DocumentInfo object using getInfo method. Once the DocumentInfo object is retrieved, you can get the values of the individual properties.
// load EPUB document Document doc = new Document("template.epub"); // get document information DocumentInfo docInfo = doc.getInfo(); // show document information System.out.println("Author: " + docInfo.getAuthor()); System.out.println("Creation Date: " + docInfo.getCreationDate()); System.out.println("Keywords: " + docInfo.getKeywords()); System.out.println("Modify Date: " + docInfo.getModDate()); System.out.println("Subject: " + docInfo.getSubject()); System.out.println("Title: " + docInfo.getTitle());
Insert Endnotes in OTT Document in Android Apps
Apart from document conversion, you can also add a bunch of other features inside your Android Applications using Aspose.Words for Android via Java API. One of that feature is inserting endnotes and numbering in OTT document. If you want to insert a footnote or an endnote in a OTT document, please use DocumentBuilder.InsertFootnote method. This method inserts a footnote or endnote into the document. EndnoteOptions and FootnoteOptions classes represent numbering options for footnote and endnote.
// load document Document doc = new Document("input.DOC"); // initialize document builder DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc); // add text in it builder.write("Some text"); // insert footnote builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.ENDNOTE, "Endnote text."); // initialize endnote options EndnoteOptions option = doc.getEndnoteOptions(); // set restart rule option.setRestartRule(FootnoteNumberingRule.RESTART_PAGE); // set position option.setPosition(EndnotePosition.END_OF_SECTION); // save the document to disk. doc.save("output.ott", SaveFormat.OTT);

What is EPUB File Format?
An EPUB file, also known as an Open eBook File, is a standardized format developed by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). It is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and XHTML (eXtensible Hypertext Markup Language). EPUB files are designed for reading digital books and publications on various electronic devices such as e-readers, tablets, and smartphones.
EPUB files consist of three main components. The first component is the spine, which contains the main text of the book and defines the order in which the pages should be read. It provides the structural framework for the content.
The second component is the manifest, which serves as a catalog of all the files that make up the EPUB book. This includes the spine, cover image, table of contents, and any additional content. The manifest ensures that all the necessary files are properly linked and organized within the EPUB package.
The third component is the container, which stores the EPUB files in a compressed format. The container helps reduce file size and enables efficient distribution and storage of EPUB books.
EPUB files can be created using various software programs such as Adobe InDesign, Sigil, and Calibre. These tools provide authors and publishers with the ability to create, edit, and format EPUB books according to the specifications set by the IDPF. With EPUB being an open and widely adopted standard, readers can enjoy a seamless reading experience across different devices and platforms.
What is OTT File Format?
OTT (OpenDocument Template) is a file format used for creating templates in the OpenDocument format. OpenDocument is an open standard for office documents, including text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more. OTT files specifically serve as templates for creating new documents with predefined styles, formatting, and content.
OTT files are based on the XML-based OpenDocument format, which ensures interoperability and compatibility across different office suites and applications that support the OpenDocument standard, such as LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice, and Calligra Suite.
When you open an OTT file, it serves as a starting point for creating a new document. It contains placeholders, predefined styles, and other elements that help structure the content and maintain consistency throughout the document. Users can modify the template as needed, such as replacing placeholders with actual content, adjusting styles, and adding or removing sections.
The advantage of using OTT files is that they provide a convenient and efficient way to create documents with consistent formatting and layout. By starting with a template, users can save time and effort in setting up the document structure and formatting from scratch.
OTT files can be easily shared and distributed, allowing others to use the same template to create documents with a unified look and feel. They also support customization options, allowing users to personalize the template according to their specific needs.
