Hi

Thanks for your inquiry. I think that you can find solution here.

Also I will try to create example for you (I am not strong in PHP).

Hope this helps.

Best regards.

Hi

I spent some time and created sample for you.

1. You should create Java class that would return a ResultSet Object. See the following example.
public class RelationSet {

public static ResultSet execQuery()

{

try

{

//Create database query

String sqlString = "SELECT \* FROM Users";

//Create statement

Statement stmt = createStatement();

//Return ResultSet object

return stmt.executeQuery(sqlString);

}

catch(Exception e)

{

System.out.println(e);

}

return null;

}

/\*\*

\* Utility function that creates a connection to the Database.

\*/

private static Statement createStatement() throws Exception

{

//Load a DB driver that is used by the demos

Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");

//Compose connection string.

String connectionString = "jdbc:odbc:DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (\*.mdb)};DBQ=**C:\\Temp\\test.mdb**;UID=Admin";

//DSN-less DB connection.

Connection connection = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionString);

//Reutrn Statement

return connection.createStatement();

}

}


As you see I used for testing Access DB.

1. Compile this, put it in a jar file, and place it in your application root folder.

2. Here is my PHP code.

<?php

require\_once("http://localhost:8080/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc");

java\_require("lib\Aspose.Words.jdk15.jar;lib\jaxen-1.1.jar;lib\RelationSet.jar");

//Open document

$doc = new Java("com.aspose.words.Document", "C:\\Temp\\in.doc"); //Create ResultSet$myResultSet = new Java("java.sql.ResultSet");

//creates an instance of my own class and executes a method of it: the database query

$myQueryResult = new Java("RelationSet");$myResultSet = $myQueryResult->execQuery(); //Execute mailMerge$doc->getMailMerge()->executeWithRegions("Users", $myResultSet); //Save document$doc->save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");

?>


Also see attached documents and sample database.

Hope this helps.

Best regards.

i get the following Error, as i have created the in.doc file in MS word where i have stated the MergeField as stated in the above example and to get the output of the Result i have created the out.doc in MS word as specific locaction

Warning**: fread() [function.fread]: Length parameter must be greater than 0 in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\JavaBridge\java\Java.inc on line 1083

protocol error: , Invalid document end at col 1. Check the back end log for details.

Hi

Thanks for your request. Could you please attach your in.doc and your code for testing? Also, note that you don’t need to create out.doc.

Best regards.

FileName:: AsposeTest.php

<?php
require\_once("java/Java.inc");
?>
java\_require("C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.6.0\_03\\jre\\lib\\ext\\Aspose.Words.jdk15.jar;
C:\\Program Files\\Java\\\jdk1.6.0\_03\\jre\\lib\\ext\\RelationSet.jar;
C:\\Program Files\\Java\\\jdk1.6.0\_03\\jre\\lib\\ext\\jaxen-1.1.jar");
$doc = new Java("com.aspose.words.Document", "C:\\Temp\\in.doc"); echo "Open document in.doc ";$myResultSet = new Java("java.sql.ResultSet");
echo "Create ResultSet ";
$myQueryResult = new Java("RelationSet"); echo "creates an instance of my own class ";$myResultSet = $myQueryResult->execQuery(); echo "executes a method of it ";$doc->getMailMerge()->executeWithRegions("Users", $myResultSet); echo "Execute mailMerge ";$doc->save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");
echo "Save document at c:\Temp\out.doc ";
?>


File Name:: in.doc

First Name Last Name
«TableStart:Users»«FirstName» «LastName»«TableEnd:Users»

Hi

Thank you for additional information. I can’t reproduce this. Your code works fine, but one difference – the following line should be a single line.

java\_require("packages\\Aspose.Words.jdk15.jar;packages\\RelationSet.jar;packages\\jaxen-1.1.jar");


Hope this helps.

Best regards.

hi
thank you for reviewing the code, do you got the same error what i got on my side with my code, i think that the java_require( ) will not be having problem of placing into single line or mulitline.its an arguement , plz do update me if you find solution to the error i have faced as soon as earlyer
with regards

Hi

Please see the following link. Maybe it will be useful for you.

Make sure the port 8080 is free and your servlet server is started on 8080 ONLY.

On my side I configure my apache to work on 8081 port and my servlet server on 8080.

Maybe this helps.

Have you tried simple hello world using Aspose.Words?

<?php

require\_once("http://localhost:8080/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc");

java\_require("lib\\Aspose.Words.jdk15.jar;lib\\jaxen-1.1.jar");

// Create a Document object

$doc = new Java("com.aspose.words.Document"); // Create a DocumentBuilder$builder = new Java("com.aspose.words.DocumentBuilder");

// Set the document

$builder->setDocument($doc);

// Write "Hello world!" in word document

$builder->write("Hello world!"); // Save created document$doc->save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");

?>


Best regards.

Hi

Here is code example for your.

1. Background image can be inserted into the document header. See the following code.
<?php

require\_once("http://localhost:8080/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc");

java\_require("packages\Aspose.Words.jdk15.jar;packages\jaxen-1.1.jar");

$headerFooterType = new Java("com.aspose.words.HeaderFooterType");$wrapType = new Java("com.aspose.words.WrapType");

//Create document

$doc = new Java("com.aspose.words.Document"); //Create DocumentBuilder$builder = new Java("com.aspose.words.DocumentBuilder", $doc ); //Move to primary header$builder->moveToHeaderFooter($headerFooterType->HEADER\_PRIMARY); //Insert image$awSahpe = $builder->insertImage("C:\\Temp\\test.jpg"); //Set wrap type of shape$awSahpe->setWrapType($wrapType->NONE); //Set position behind text$awSahpe->setBehindText(true);

//Move to document end

$builder->moveToDocumentEnd(); //Write some text$builder->write("Background image test");

//Save document

$doc->save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc"); ?>  1. Change font of document. <?php require\_once("http://localhost:8080/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc"); //Load libraries java\_require("packages\Aspose.Words.jdk15.jar;packages\jaxen-1.1.jar"); //Open document$doc = new Java("com.aspose.words.Document", "C:\\Temp\\in.doc");

for ( $sectionIndex = 0;$sectionIndex < $doc->getSections()->getCount();$sectionIndex++)

{

$section =$doc->getSections()->get($sectionIndex); for ($paragraphIndex = 0; $paragraphIndex <$section->getBody()->getParagraphs()->getCount(); $paragraphIndex++) {$paragraph = $section->getBody()->getParagraphs()->get($paragraphIndex);

//Set font of paragraph

$paragraph->getParagraphFormat()->getStyle()->getFont()->setName("Arial"); } }$doc->save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");

?>

Hi

Thanks for your inquiry. As I see from error message your ResultSet is null. Make sure that ResultSet is not null.
