New user - question about Aspose.Words for java

Hi all.
I work for a Canadian Insurance Company. We are implementing a new Claims system, and one of the things we want to do is to convert Word documents created by Claims users, convert the Word docs to PDF, then store the PDFs in our Document Management System (FileNet).
We have been looking at the BETA of Aspose.Words for java, as one of the requirements is to do the conversion within java code.
However, we have found that Aspose.Words for java does not create a 100% faithful Rendition of the Word doc. In one case, a picture didn’t convert correctly, in another, the page flow wasn’t quite right, etc.
Our goal is to find a tool that will create an exact image of the Word document. Can Aspose.Words for java accomplish that task? If so, what might we be doing wrong that the PDF that is rendered is not an exact image of the Word doc?
Sorry if this is a Noob question.

Hi there,
Thanks for considering Aspose.Words.
The rendering functionality in Java is currently in beta, so there are some features that are limited when rendering.
We are currently working to syncronize the .NET and Java versions. Once this is complete all of the functionality from .NET will be avaliable in Java and rendering to PDF will be out of beta. This version is due to be released sometime in August. We will keep you informed of it’s release.
In the mean time if you are able to, you can try out the rendering feature in latest .NET and observe if there are any issues with the rendering there. You can download the latest version from here.

Thanks - we have scheduled a test using the .net product this week.

We are happy to inform you that the first auto-ported version of Aspose.Words for Java is ready. This version supports converting documents to PDF. You can get it from here.

Best regards,
Aspose.Words team
