Convert PCL to WMZ via Java

Export PCL file to WMZ within any within any Java J2SE, J2EE, J2ME applications without using Adobe® Acrobat Reader


You can convert pcl file to WMZ image in Java in two simple steps. Firstly, by using Aspose.PDF for Java , you can export PCL to JPEG. After that, by using Aspose.Imaging for Java Image Processing API, you can render JPEG to WMZ. Both APIs come under the Aspose.Total for Java package.

Export PCL to WMZ via Java

  1. Open PCL file using Document class
  2. Initialize class object and render PCL to JPEG by using Process method
  3. Load JPEG file by using Image class
  4. Save the document to WMZ format using save method

Get Started with Java File Automation APIs

You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include libraries in your pom.xml.

Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .

Convert PCL to WMZ in a Single File via Java

The API also allows you to export PCL file to WMZ to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your PCL document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to WMZ. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to WMZ format using save method.

Convert PCL to WMZ With Watermark via Java

Using the API, you can also export PCL file to WMZ with watermark in your WMZ document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert PCL to JPEG and add a watermark in it. In order to add watermark, load an image file using the Image class, create an object of the Graphics class and initialize it with Image object, create a new Matrix object and set translation and transformation to the desired angle and add watermark using Graphics.drawString method. After adding the watermark in your image, you can save the JPEG as WMZ format.

Convert & Rotate PCL to WMZ File via Java

Using the API, you can also rotate the output WMZ image as per your needs. The Image.rotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. The library provides simple methods to perform complex operations while encapsulating all ugly details. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image, you can load the converted JPEG image using the Image class and call the Image.rotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

PCL What is PCL File Format?

PCL stands for Printer Command Language which is a Page Description Language introduced by Hewlett Packard (HP). HP created PCL to provide an efficient way for controlling printer features across many different printing devices. The format was originally developed for HP’s dot matrix and Inkjet printers, but has been part of various thermal, matrix and page printers with the passage of time. The format underwent several different revisions, resulting in different versions where each version was enhanced to meet the demands of time with respect to the printer control features. Today, PCL is the most widely spread printer language in the laster printer market.
