Convert PDF to PDF/A with Aspose PDF for Java 3.2.0

We are evaluating the product for the conversion of existing PDF documents to PDF/A. So far we have not been able to successfully convert a PDF to PDF/A. Are there any samples available that show how one would do this?

Some other observations from the README.TXT file:

  • We are using Java 1.6 - why would we need to use Retrotranslater? Looking at the web page it is all about Java 5.0 support.
  • The download link for JAI still points to http://java.sun.com/... where Sun has been bought by Oracle some time ago. Why would we need JAI?

Thanks in Advance and Best Regards,

Richard.

Hi Richard,


Thanks for your interest in our products.

Aspose.Pdf for Java is a component which provides the feature to create PDF files from scratch. However we have a separate component named Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java which supports the feature to manipulate existing PDF document. I am afraid currently Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java does not support the feature to convert PDF file into PDF/A format. For the sake of implementation, we already have logged this requirement as PDFKITJAVA-28640. The development team is working on implementing this feature and as soon as we have some have significant progress, we will let you know.

JAI is required when trying to convert TIFF image to PDF or during the conversion of PDF file into TIFF image using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java.

We are sorry for your inconvenience.

Thanks for your quick and detailed response.

Thanks and Best Regards,
