Is there a document that can compare the differences between the .NET and the Java versions? I really like Words 9.0 for .NET and wondering how close the latest Java version is that.
In particular, I’m interested in the MailMerge and FieldUpdate functionality.
Yes there is, please refer to this page. It lists the main differences between the .NET and Java versions of Aspose.Words.
Detailed information about Mailmerge functions can be found here.
Also you can find some information about FieldUpdates here.
We will also be uploading some detailed documentation on “Nested mail merge” shortly.
Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any further queries.
Thanks, Adam. Looks like the Java version is a ways behind the .NET version, in particular regarding all the new groovy Field Update functionality and MailMerge rendering.
You're welcome. Don't worry our developers are working as hard as they can, all new functionality will be implemented in Java in the near future.
We are happy to inform you that the first auto-ported version of Aspose.Words for Java is ready. This version supports updating fields. You can get it from here.
Above given link is broken . Please send me updated link for comparison between .Net and Java Aspose versions. Please send this report asap as I need to start using one of the dll.
