Transform XPS to DOCM via Java

On Premise Java API to Render XPS to DOCM without using any third party application

 

You can convert XPS to DOCM by using two simple steps. First you need to render XPS 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 DOCM. Both APIs come under Aspose.Total for Java package.

Java API to Convert XPS to DOCM

  1. Open XPS file using Document class
  2. Convert XPS to DOC by using save method
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class of Aspose.Words
  4. Save the document to DOCM format using save method and set DOCM 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 XPS file with an instance of Document class
Document document = new Document("template.xps");
// save XPS 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.DOCM
outputDocument.save("output.docm", SaveFormat.DOCM);   

Open Password Protected XPS Document via Java

While converting XPS to DOCM, 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 XPS using the owner’s password.

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

Save DOCM Document to a Database via Java

While saving your input document to DOCM 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 DOCM 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.DOCM);
    // 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);
}

XPS What is XPS File Format?

An XPS file represents page layout files that are based on XML Paper Specifications created by Microsoft. It was developed as a replacement of EMF file format and is similar to PDF file format, but uses XML in layout, appearance, and printing information of a document. It is, in fact, more justified to say that XPS is an attempt on PDF, but couldn’t get enough popularity as owned by PDF for many reasons. Microsoft provides XPS Document Writer by default from Windows 7 onwards for the creation of XPS files. XPS files can be generated by selecting the Microsoft XPS Document Writer as printer while printing the document.

DOCM files are Microsoft Word 2007 or higher generated documents with the ability to run macros. It is similar to DOCX file format but the ability to run macros makes it different from DOCX. Like DOCX, DOCM files can be store text, images, tables, shapes, charts and other contents.The capability to run macros make it easy to save time by executing the series of commands in the form of recorded actions for automatic completion of a task. DOCM files can be opened and edited in Microsoft Word 2007 and above.
