Converting an XPS file to a JPEG2000 image in Java is a simple two-step process. The first step is to use the Aspose.PDF for Java API to export the XPS file to a JPEG image. Aspose.PDF for Java is part of the Aspose.Total for Java package, which is a suite of APIs for manipulating and converting various file formats.
The second step is to use the Aspose.Imaging for Java API to render the JPEG image to a JPEG2000 image. Aspose.Imaging for Java is an image processing API that provides a range of features for manipulating and converting images. It is also part of the Aspose.Total for Java package.
Using the two APIs together, you can easily convert an XPS file to a JPEG2000 image in Java. The process is straightforward and requires minimal coding. All you need to do is call the relevant methods from the APIs and you can have your XPS file converted to a JPEG2000 image in no time.
Export XPS to JPEG2000 via Java
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 XPS to JPEG2000 in a Single File via Java
The API also allows you to export XPS file to JPEG2000 to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your XPS document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to JPEG2000. 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 JPEG2000 format using save method.
Convert XPS to JPEG2000 With Watermark via Java
Using the API, you can also export XPS file to JPEG2000 with watermark in your JPEG2000 document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert XPS 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 JPEG2000 format.
Convert & Rotate XPS to JPEG2000 File via Java
Using the API, you can also rotate the output JPEG2000 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 .

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 JPEG2000 File Format?
JPEG2000 is an advanced file format developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) as an extension of the popular JPEG image format. It was designed to provide superior image quality and efficient compression compared to other formats available at the time. JPEG2000 incorporates several key features that contribute to its advantages in various applications.
One notable feature of JPEG2000 is its utilization of wavelet-based compression. Unlike the discrete cosine transform (DCT) used in traditional JPEG, wavelet-based compression allows for more efficient compression rates while preserving higher image quality. This makes JPEG2000 particularly well-suited for applications that require both high compression and excellent image fidelity, such as medical imaging, digital cinema, and satellite imagery.
A significant benefit of JPEG2000 is its support for lossless compression. Lossless compression enables the reduction in file size without sacrificing any original image data. This is crucial in applications where data preservation is essential, including archiving and storage of critical images or documents. JPEG2000’s lossless compression capability ensures that no data is lost during the compression process, maintaining the integrity of the original image.
JPEG2000 is also scalable, which means it allows for the creation of multiple versions of the same image with varying levels of detail. This scalability feature enables the generation of images at different resolutions or quality levels from a single compressed file, offering flexibility in various scenarios. For instance, it can be useful in applications where images need to be delivered at different levels of detail based on the available bandwidth or display capabilities.
