Aspose.Slides 38MB Jar file

Dear Support,

I have a question regard the size of the jar file.
My aspose-slides is included by Maven, it means I have the following entry as dependency

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.aspose</groupId>
    <artifactId>aspose-slides</artifactId>
    <version>16.12.0</version>
</dependency>

… and I am pointing to this repository

    <repository>
        <id>aspose-maven-repository</id>
        <url>http://maven.aspose.com/repository/ext-release-local</url>
        <releases>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
        </releases>
        <snapshots>
            <enabled>false</enabled>
        </snapshots>
    </repository>

So far so good, but my only concern is regarding the size of this aspose-slides.jar . This is 38MB !!! well, for a single dependency it is a lot - I understand it is very powerful and reliable, but I was wondering if there is a lightweight version that we can use. Are you sure everything that is included in this library is really needed ? Uploading this jar file to the server under limited VPN connection is a lot of time :-/

I would appreciate if we could have a light version of slides-java.jar

Thank you so much.

@gsviteri,

I have observed the information shared by you and like to share that more than 2/3 of Aspose.Slides for Jar consists of internal required libraries. Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide or create a light weight version of Aspose.Slides for Java. All the libraries included in the Jar are required.
