Producing a valid PDFA file

I'm testing the ability to produce a PDF/A compliant file from a word doc. The file produced contains errors when validating the PDF. The following test demonstrates the problem.

I've also attached the test.doc file as well as the validation results file.

@Test
public void convertPdfCompliantDocumentFromWord() throws Exception {
Document doc = new Document(this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("/test.doc"));
ByteArrayOutputStream pdfBytes = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
PdfSaveOptions saveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();
saveOptions.setCompliance(PdfCompliance.PDF_A_1_B);
doc.save(pdfBytes, saveOptions);

com.aspose.pdf.Document pdf = new com.aspose.pdf.Document(new ByteArrayInputStream(pdfBytes.toByteArray()));
ByteArrayOutputStream validationBytes = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
pdf.validate(validationBytes, PdfFormat.PDF_A_1B);

String validationXml = validationBytes.toString();
if (validationXml.contains("Problem")) {
fail("PDF compliance validations exist:\n" + validationXml);
}
}

Versions:

com.aspose
aspose-pdf
11.3.0
com.aspose
aspose-words
16.2.0
jdk16

Are there any plans to offer PDF/A-3 compliance? The PDF library offers it as an option for validation but the Words library only contains PDF/A-1

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your inquiry.
