MS XPS to PDF

Hi … I would like to be able to convert Microsoft XPS to PDF. Which is the right product for me in the Aspose product family?

Will that product family support the following:

  1. Linux OS
  2. ARM platform
  3. ThreadX

Thank you.

Thanks for contacting support.

Aspose offers Aspose.PDF and Aspose.XPS APIs which enable you to convert XPS documents into PDF. You may further visit product pages of both APIs at given links and check which of the APIs offers best and suitable features you require. You may also find different platforms information for which APIs are offered. In case of any further assistance, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you for your reply.

Do the API’s convert both Microsoft XPS and Open XPS documents into PDF?

@arahulr

Thanks for getting back to us.

First of all please accept our humble apology for the misinformation. Please note that feature to convert XPS into PDF is under development at the moment for Aspose.XPS API and it is logged under the ticket XPSNET-27. As soon as we have some updates on feature availability in Aspose.XPS, we will surely let you know.

Using Aspose.PDF, yes, you can convert both XPS and OXPS documents into PDF. You will be using same code snippet in order to convert either of the document into PDF as follows:

Aspose.Pdf.LoadOptions options = new XpsLoadOptions();
Aspose.Pdf.Document document = new Aspose.Pdf.Document(dataDir + "example.oxps", options);
document.Save(dataDir + "example_out.pdf"); 

In event of any further query, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you for the clarity on the Aspose.PDF and Aspose.XPS products.

I was going through the Aspose.PDF product family and the C++/Java implementations interested me. What I understood was that Aspose.PDF C++ supports Windows platform only and Aspose.PDF Java is platform independent.
Was the Aspose.PDF Java SDK/API tested on the ARM platform?

@arahulr

Thanks for getting back to us.

I am afraid that Aspose.PDF for Java has not been tested for ARM Platforms. However, an investigation ticket has already been logged in our issue tracking system as PDFJAVA-38142. We will investigate the API support under mentioned platform and as soon as we have some feedback, we will share with you. Please be patient and spare us little time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
