Aspose JAR file size

Hi - we are customers of Aspose.Words and this jar range in size is 14M. In some scenarios, we need to package a version of our product that has to be very sized constrained and the Aspose jars are easily 90% of the total image size (they total 170M), despite our product using many other third-party jars. We use other Aspose APIs as well.

I believe Aspose uses some form of C# -> Java converter/handler in their Jars and this is responsible for the large sizes. Is it possible for this “converter” to be in a single jar that all these jars can share to reduce the size?

The sizes you see below are simply gigantic for JAR files and is a real problem.

I’ve seen this topic has been raised before. Can Aspose take this on?

Hi, @nuix

We are currently considering adding additional repackaging configuration that could reduce the size of the Aspose.Words for Java library. This task is logged as WORDSJAVA-2666. We will keep you informed and let you know once it is resolved. Thank you for your feedback.

Hi - that is great to hear about Aspose.Words, but what about all the other Aspose jar files I listed above?

@nuix I have moved this post in Aspose.Total forum so my colleagues from other teams can reply you.

@nuix,

See the reply in your other thread regarding other Aspose APIs (JARs) for your reference.

@nuix,
Unfortunately, it is not possible to use the Aspose.Slides library with a smaller size yet. But some optimizations have already been planned to significantly reduce the library size. The tentative ETA is version 22.7. This version will be released in July 2022. I linked this forum thread to an appropriate task with ID SLIDESJAVA-38755 in our issue tracking system. You will be notified when the issue is resolved.
