Convert Word Processing Formats
The ability to quickly and reliably save different formats with a high degree of precision is the reason most of our customers choose Aspose.Words. The Word processing and conversion Java API allows you to save Word files from any supported format to any other supported format with just two lines of code. It is really that simple!
Save the file in different formats - Java
// load the file to be converted Document wpd = new Document(dir + "template.doc"); // convert doc to docx, PDF and HTML wpd.save(dir + "output.docx", SaveFormat.DOCX); wpd.save(dir + "output.pdf", SaveFormat.PDF); wpd.save(dir + "output.html", SaveFormat.HTML);
Automated Report Generation with Mail Merge
Aspose.Words for Java is a fully-featured reporting solution. You can design reports in Microsoft Word and then allow API to populate files with data from a number of data sources while keeping the mail merge settings preserved. Aspose.Words for Java allows using standard Microsoft Word mail merge fields in reports. Additionally, you can use library extended syntax for mail merge fields to perform more complex tasks during the merging operations such as inserting images or repeatable regions.
Build, Parse & Edit with Document Object Model
Aspose.Words for Java helps developers to create, build, modify, parse and examine loaded files using our intuitive document object model that consists of over 100 classes. This object model allows the developers to programmatically create, modify, extract and replace all elements including Sections, Headers, Footers, Paragraphs, Lists, Tables, Text, Fields, Hyperlinks, Bookmarks, Images, Smart tags, Shapes, Custom XML and many other elements.
Furthermore, all drawing objects including shapes, TextBoxes, images, OLE objects, and controls are supported through this document object model, thus allowing you to perform many tasks such as inserting watermarks in pages or extracting images from a pre-existing file.
Manipulate HTML Files with Ease
API can load and save HTML and XHTML files. The import process is resilient to documents that are not well-formed, that is; invalid or unrecognized elements or attributes can safely be ignored during the import. Conversion to HTML & XHTML is highly customizable thus allowing you to adjust a number of settings to suit the application requirements.
Utility Features to Improve Productivity
Aspose.Words for Java provides useful utility features such as join or split files, copy fragments between them, protect or un-protect files, modify properties and insert HTML fragments into documents. All of these features are available via easy-to-use APIs to help developers perform complex operations without worrying about the file format specifications.
Join two documents - Java
// load source & destination files Document srcDoc = new Document(dir + "source.docx"); Document dstDoc = new Document(dir + "destination.docx"); // set the appended file to start from a new page srcDoc.getFirstSection().getPageSetup().setSectionStart(SectionStart.NEW_PAGE); // append the source file using its original styles dstDoc.appendDocument(srcDoc, ImportFormatMode.KEEP_SOURCE_FORMATTING); // save final result dstDoc.save(dir + "output.docx");
Microsoft Office Automation - Not Needed
Aspose.Words for Java is built using managed code that does not need Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word to be installed on the machine to work with Word formats. It is a perfect Microsoft Word automation alternative in terms of supported features, security, stability, scalability, speed and price.
