Aspose Word. Java : get the document without saving

Hi,

I am first time using Aspose word Java API in our project. I have below requirement. After retrieving document template and execute mail merge, my data will be filled up in the template document. Since we want to convert Document into PDF, we were using PDFSaveOption class. But as per requirement we dont want to store this pdf document to any physical location, instead it should be converted into PDF and should be in memory and we retrieve it as Blob and send it to client.

is that possible?

Please advice.

Thanks

Hi

Thanks for your request. Sure you can achieve this. Please see the following code:

// Open input document (you can also open document from InputStream).

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\in.doc");

// Save document as PDF ito output stream and get byte array.

ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

doc.save(baos, SaveFormat.PDF);

byte[] pdfBytes = baos.toByteArray();

baos.flush();

baos.close();

Best regards,

with above code i am getting below exception

java.lang.NullPointerException: stream
at com.aspose.words.Document.a(Document.java:1701)
at com.aspose.words.Document.a(Document.java:1445)
at com.aspose.words.Document.save(Document.java:959)
at BlobTest.main(BlobTest.java:17)


Here is my code:

public static void main(String[] args) {


try {
Document doc = new Document(“C:\Test\Deployment.doc”);

ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
doc.save(baos, SaveFormat.PDF);
byte [] pefBytes = baos.toByteArray();
System.out.println(pefBytes);

baos.flush();
baos.close();


} catch (Exception e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}finally{
}

}
}
