Using Aspose.Total for Java you can easily convert XPS to POTX within any Java J2SE, J2EE, J2ME application. Firstly, by using Aspose.PDF for Java , you can export XPS to PPTX. After that, by using Aspose.Slides for Java PowerPoint Processing API, you can convert PPTX to POTX.
Java API to Convert XPS to POTX
- Open XPS file using Document class
- Convert XPS to PPTX by using save method
- Load PPTX document by using Presentation class
- Save the document to POTX format using
method and set
Get Started with Java File Format APIs
You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include Aspose.PDF for Java and Aspose.Slides 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 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 Potx format presentation.save("output.potx", SaveFormat.Potx);
Open Encrypted XPS File via Java
While loading XPS 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 XPS document Document doc = new Document("input.xps", "Your@Password"); // save XPS as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
Save POTX File with Predefined View Type via Java
After converting XPS to POTX, 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 Potx format presentation.save("output.potx", SaveFormat.Potx);

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 POTX File Format?
POTX is a file format used in Microsoft PowerPoint to store presentation templates. It is part of the Office Open XML (OOXML) format introduced in PowerPoint 2007 and is an evolution of the older POT format. The “X” in POTX signifies the XML-based nature of the format.
POTX files contain pre-designed slide layouts, formatting, and styles that can be applied to new presentations. These templates serve as a starting point for creating consistent and visually appealing slideshows. They can include placeholders for text, images, charts, tables, and other multimedia elements, allowing users to customize the content while maintaining a consistent design.
The use of POTX files offers several advantages. They allow users to save time and effort by reusing predefined layouts and designs, ensuring a consistent look and feel across presentations. They also enable organizations to establish brand identity and enforce corporate design standards by providing templates with company-specific branding elements.
To use a POTX file, users can simply open it in PowerPoint or select it as a template when creating a new presentation. PowerPoint provides editing tools to modify the template and customize the content as needed. Additionally, users can save their own customized templates in the POTX format for future use or sharing with others.
POTX files are widely compatible with different versions of PowerPoint on various platforms, including Windows, macOS, and mobile devices. They provide a convenient way to streamline the presentation creation process and maintain consistency in visual design and formatting.
