Aspose.Total for Java is an all-in-one suite of components that enables developers to easily convert PostScript (PS) to Shockwave Flash (SWF) within any Java J2SE, J2EE, or J2ME application. This suite of components is designed to make it easy for developers to quickly and efficiently convert PS to SWF with minimal effort.
The process of converting PS to SWF with Aspose.Total for Java is simple and straightforward. Firstly, the PS file is exported to a PowerPoint Presentation (PPTX) file using Aspose.PDF for Java. This component is a powerful PDF Processing API that enables developers to easily convert PS to PPTX.
Once the PS file has been converted to a PPTX file, Aspose.Slides for Java can be used to convert the PPTX file to SWF. Aspose.Slides for Java is a powerful PowerPoint Processing API that enables developers to quickly and easily convert PPTX to SWF.
With Aspose.Total for Java, developers can easily convert PS to SWF within any Java J2SE, J2EE, or J2ME application. This suite of components makes it easy for developers to quickly and efficiently convert PS to SWF with minimal effort.
Java API to Convert PS to SWF
Get Started with Java File Format APIs
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
// load PS file with an instance of Document class Document document = new Document("template.ps"); // save PS as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx); // instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // save the presentation as Swf format presentation.save("output.swf", SaveFormat.Swf);
Open Encrypted PS File via Java
While loading PS file format, your document might be password protected. Aspose.PDF for Java allows you open encrypted documents as well. In order to open the encrypted file, you can initialize new instance of the Document class and pass filename and password as arguments.
// open PS document Document doc = new Document("input.ps", "Your@Password"); // save PS as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
Save SWF File with Predefined View Type via Java
After converting PS to SWF, you can also add predefined view type for your presentation. Aspose.Slides for Java provides a facility to set the view type for the generated presentation when it is opened in PowerPoint through the ViewProperties class. The setLastView property is used to set the view type by using the ViewType enumerator.
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // set view type presentation.getViewProperties().setLastView((byte) ViewType.SlideMasterView); // save the presentation as Swf format presentation.save("output.swf", SaveFormat.Swf);

What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
What is SWF File Format?
The SWF (Shockwave Flash) file format is a popular multimedia format primarily used for delivering interactive and animated content on the web. Developed by Macromedia (now owned by Adobe Systems), SWF files are widely supported by web browsers and plug-ins, making them an integral part of web design and online entertainment.
SWF files are primarily composed of vector graphics, animation, audio, and video elements. They are created using software such as Adobe Animate (formerly known as Flash Professional) or other SWF authoring tools. The format supports interactivity through scripting languages like ActionScript, allowing developers to create interactive buttons, menus, and games within SWF files.
One of the key advantages of SWF files is their compact size. They are highly compressed, resulting in small file sizes that can be quickly downloaded and streamed over the internet. This makes SWF files ideal for delivering multimedia content efficiently, even on slower internet connections.
SWF files are often embedded into web pages, providing a seamless and engaging user experience. They can be played directly within web browsers using Adobe Flash Player or other SWF players. Additionally, SWF files can be standalone applications or screensavers, providing versatile usage beyond the web.
Over the years, the SWF format has evolved to support advanced features like 3D graphics, hardware acceleration, and multimedia streaming. However, it’s important to note that the usage of SWF files has declined in recent years due to the rise of alternative web technologies, such as HTML5 and CSS3, which offer similar capabilities without the need for additional plug-ins or proprietary software.
