Does Aspose Support Creation of PPTX documents in JAVA

We are looking forward for a Server side Power point 2007 pptx document builder in Java Platform. The powerpoint file can have one more charts in a slide. If Aspose supports this, please let me know the appropriate software of Aspose to do that. It will be highly helpfuly if you can provide the known issues with the software and some example that shows how it works.

Hi Rajesh,

Aspose.Slides for Java provides class library to handle PowerPoint 2003 (PPT) as well as PowerPoint 2007 (PPTX) files, whereas Aspose.Cells for Java provides class library to handle MS Excel features including Excel charts. So, in order to work with presentations alongwith charts, both Aspose.Slides for Java and Aspose.Cells for Java are to be used. That is, Excel Charts will be created using Aspose.Cells for Java and these charts can be embedded as OLE Object in presentation using Aspose.Slides for Java.

1) A complete example to create charts in MS Excel and embed them in MS PowerPoint 2003 docs can be found here.

2) The same example can be implemented for MS PowerPoint 2007. However, there is an issue with SlideEx.getShapes.addOleObjectFrame() method which is supposed to embed an OLE Object in PPTX docs, whereas Slide.getShapes.addOleObjectFrame() which is supposed to do the same for PPT docs is working fine. This issue has been reported as 13265 for a fix by our product development team. This thread has been associated with this issue so that you can be autoresponded as soon as it is resolved.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 13265) have been fixed in this update.
