NoSuchMethodError: com.aspose.words.Paragraph.<init>(Lcom/aspose/words/Document;)V

Hello Aspose Team,

I am trying to extract Html text from the doc and getting the exception below. Code i am using for this is

private String getClauseHTMLText(Paragraph clauseStart) throws Exception{

String htmlText = null;

Document tempDoc = new Document();

Paragraph tempPara = clauseStart;

ByteArrayOutputStream outStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

while(tempPara != null){

Node newNode = (Node)tempDoc.importNode(tempPara, true, ImportFormatMode.USE_DESTINATION_STYLES);


tempDoc.getLastSection().getBody().appendChild(new Paragraph(tempDoc));

tempPara = (Paragraph)tempPara.getNextSibling();

if(tempPara != null && tempPara.getListFormat() != null && tempPara.getListFormat().isListItem() && tempPara.getListFormat().getListLevelNumber() <= 1)



tempDoc.save(outStream, SaveFormat.HTML);

htmlText = outStream.toString("UTF-8");

return htmlText;



Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.aspose.words.Paragraph.(Lcom/aspose/words/Document;)V

Thanks for your inquiry. I cannot reproduce the problem on my side. Your code works fine. I use the latest version of Aspose.Words for Java for testing. You can download it from here:


Also, could you please attach your document here for testing? I will check it and provide you more information.

Best regards,

Thanks for your quick reply.

I am attaching the doc I am using for parsing.

Can you please give me your code so that it can me in implementation?

Thank you for additional information. Your code works file with the attached document. Here is code I used for testing:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\TestCheck2.doc");

for(Paragraph par : doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getParagraphs())




I did not change anything in your implementation of getClauseHTMLText method.

Best regards,
