Launching a word document using Aspose.Words in Java


i am facing problem with launching a Word document without saving it.

Requirement is as follows:

We are using Aspose.words in Java swing application to manipulate placeholders in word document and launching the doc.

Is it possible with Aspose.Word component to launch the word document without saving it with placeholders being replaced by the actual content?


Hi Alok,

Thanks for your inquiry. First of all please note that Aspose.Words for .NET is a class library that enables your applications to perform a great range of document processing tasks. Aspose.Words supports DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML, OpenDocument, PDF, XPS, EPUB and other formats. With Aspose.Words you can generate, modify, convert, render and print documents without utilizing Microsoft Word®. For more information, please go through the documentation below:

Secondly, Aspose.Words does not offer any user interface control to view/edit MS Word documents in Java swing application. However, you can easily display document in your application by converting document to images and view the images in your application. Please use the following code snippet to convert your document to images.

Could you please share some more detail about the manipulation of placeholders in word document?
