How's the update to the Java edition coming along?

Hello –

I’ve been looking for a solution for manipulating Word documents and the Java version of Aspose.Words sounds like the ideal solution! Unfortunately, I need to be able to convert to PDFs as well. From other posts, it looks like you may be working on a solution in the Java version to convert to PDF.

Would you be so kind as to provide an update as to how that development is going? Any estimated ship date yet on the updated Java version?

We have included source code of a "pretty rough" conversion to PDF into the demo project shipped with Aspose.Words for Java - it uses the iText library for this. It is rough because the output will not look like original DOC in many cases. It was just to show how much can be done via Aspose.Words object model.

At the moment we are working on supporting images and drawing objects in Aspose.Words for Java. Work on converting DOC to PDF will start right after that. We want it all asap too. It is hard to give estimations, please check back in 2-3 months for progress.


Any update on this? This is the last road block to buying your product. We work with very large mail merges and downloading 4000 page documents into word does not word so well.



The exact date for implementing PDF export in our Java version is not set yet. Somewhere in 2007.

Best regards,
