Transform SVG to DOT via Java

On Premise Java API to Render SVG to DOT without using any third party application

 

You can convert SVG to DOT by using two simple steps. First you need to render SVG file to DOC using Aspose.PDF for Java . After that, by using powerful Document Processing API Aspose.Words for Java , you can convert DOC to DOT. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for Java package.

Java API to Convert SVG to DOT

  1. Open SVG file using Document class
  2. Convert SVG to DOC by using save method
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class of Aspose.Words
  4. Save the document to DOT format using save method and set DOT as SaveFormat

Get Started with Java File Manipulation APIs

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

Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .

// load SVG file with an instance of Document class
Document document = new Document("template.svg");
// save SVG as a DOC 
document.save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.DOC); 
// load DOC with an instance of Document
Document outputDocument = new com.aspose.words.Document("DocOutput.doc");
// call save method while passing SaveFormat.DOT
outputDocument.save("output.dot", SaveFormat.DOT);   

Open Password Protected SVG Document via Java

While converting SVG to DOT, even if your document is password protected, you can still open it using PDF Manipulation API Aspose.PDF for Java . In order to open the encrypted file, you need to create a Document object and open the SVG using the owner’s password.

Document document = new Document("input.svg", "password");
// save SVG as a DOC 
document.save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.DOC);

Save DOT Document to a Database via Java

While saving your input document to DOT file format, you can also save your document to database instead of a file system. You may need to implement storing and retrieving Document objects to and from a database. This would be necessary if you were implementing any type of content management system. In order to save your DOT to database it is often necessary to serialize the document to obtain a byte array. This can be done using Aspose.Words for Java API. After getting your byte array, you can store it in the database using SQL statement.

public static void StoreToDatabase(Document doc, Connection mConnection) throws Exception {
    // create an output stream which uses byte array to save data
    ByteArrayOutputStream aout = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
    // save the document to byte array
    doc.save(aout, SaveFormat.DOT);
    // get the byte array from output steam
    // the byte array now contains the document
    byte[] buffer = aout.toByteArray();
    // get the filename from the document.
    String fileName = doc.getOriginalFileName();
    String filePath = fileName.replace("\\", "\\\\");
    // create the SQL command.
    String commandString = "INSERT INTO Documents (FileName, FileContent) VALUES('" + filePath + "', '" + buffer + "')";
    Statement statement = mConnection.createStatement();
    statement.executeUpdate(commandString);
}

SVG What is SVG File Format?

An SVG file is a Scalar Vector Graphics file that uses XML based text format for describing the appearance of an image. The word Scalable refers to the fact that the SVG can be scaled to different sizes without losing any quality. Text-based description of such files makes them independent of resolution. It is one of the most used formats for building a website and print graphics in order to achieve scalability. The format can only be used for two-dimensional graphics though. SVG files can be viewed/opened in almost all modern browsers including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari.

DOT What is DOT File Format?

Files with .DOT extension are template files created by Microsoft Word to have pre-formatted settings for generation of further DOC or DOCX files. A template file is created in order to have specific user settings that should be applied to subsequent files created from these. These settings include page margins, borders, headers, footers, and other page settings. Such templates are used in official documents such as company letterheads and standardized forms. The DOT file format is specific to Microsoft Word 2003 and earlier, but is supported by higher versions as well. Microsoft Word by default opens every new document based on normal.dot file. If modified, all the new files created will result in same settings as from the template file. In Microsoft Word 2007, the DOT file format has been replaced with Office OpenXML based DOTX file format.
