Split DOCX in Java

This software library provides Java developers with a set of functions to split DOCX files into parts. Splitting a DOCX document into separate files can be used to make it easier to work with sections of a document in parallel. For example, if several people are working on one DOCX document at the same time, splitting it will allow them to speed up the work. The DOCX document splitting may be part of a technology for extracting text from DOCX files and integrating data into automated information systems or databases.

Our library provides Java developers with all the necessary functions to split DOCX files into parts and extract pages according to the specified mode. This is a stand-alone Java solution that does not need Microsoft Word, Acrobat Reader or other applications installed.

Split DOCX document into parts using Java

Split DOCX content using different criteria in Java code. You can use the following page extraction modes for DOCX documents: 'split by headings', 'split by sections', 'split page by page', 'split by page ranges'.

After splitting your DOCX file into parts, you can export the result to the required file format using the 'Document.Save' method. You can also control how the DOCX document parts are exported to HTML or EPUB using the 'DocumentPartSavingCallback' property, which will allow you to redirect output streams.

Split DOCX documents easily with our solution for Java. The following example shows how to split a DOCX document using Java:
