Aspose.Total for Java is a comprehensive suite of components that enables developers to easily integrate XPS to CSV conversion feature in their Java applications. This two-step process begins with the use of Aspose.PDF for Java to render XPS to XLSX. Aspose.PDF for Java is a powerful PDF manipulation API that enables developers to create, edit, convert, and manipulate PDF documents without any external dependencies. It provides a wide range of features such as document conversion, text extraction, image extraction, document signing, and more.
Once the XPS document is converted to XLSX, the second step is to convert XLSX to CSV. This can be achieved by using Aspose.Cells for Java, a powerful spreadsheet programming API that enables developers to create, manipulate, and convert spreadsheets without any external dependencies. It provides a wide range of features such as document conversion, text extraction, image extraction, document signing, and more. Aspose.Cells for Java also provides support for a variety of file formats such as XLSX, XLS, CSV, HTML, and more.
By using Aspose.Total for Java, developers can easily integrate XPS to CSV conversion feature in their Java applications. Aspose.PDF for Java enables developers to render XPS to XLSX and Aspose.Cells for Java enables developers to convert XLSX to CSV. Both components are part of the Aspose.Total for Java suite, which provides a comprehensive set of components for developers to easily integrate various features in their Java applications.
Convert XPS File to CSV via Java
Get Started with Java File Format APIs
Convert Protected XPS to CSV via Java
If your XPS document is password protected, you cannot convert it to CSV without the password. Using the API, you can first open the protected document using a valid password and convert it after it. In order to open the encrypted file, you can initialize a new instance of the Document class and pass filename and password as arguments.
Convert XPS File to CSV with Watermark via Java
While converting XPS file to CSV, you can also add watermark to your output CSV file format. In order to add a watermark, create a new Workbook to open the converted XLSX file. Select Worksheet via its index, create a Shape and use its addTextEffect function, set colors, transparency and more. After that you can save your XLSX document as CSV with Watermark.

What is XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
What is CSV File Format?
A CSV (Comma-Separated Values) file is a commonly used format for storing tabular data, resembling a spreadsheet or database. It consists of data separated by commas, where each row represents a record. CSV files can be opened in text editors like Microsoft Notepad or Apple TextEdit, as well as spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel or Apple Numbers.
When opened in a text editor, CSV data is displayed in a table format. Columns are separated by commas, and each row is separated by a new line. The first row, known as the header row, contains column names.
CSV files allow for easy data exchange between different applications. Data can be exported from spreadsheet programs like Excel or Numbers and saved in a CSV format. Similarly, CSV files can be imported into these programs, allowing data to be transferred from one system to another.
CSV files offer flexibility and compatibility due to their simple and universal structure. They are widely used for data migration, sharing information across platforms, and integrating data from various sources. The straightforward nature of CSV files makes them accessible for data manipulation, analysis, and processing by both humans and computer systems.
