// Here I want to to load Xml
File fXmlFile = new File("C:\\Users\\Sath Tech\\Desktop\\data.xml");
com.aspose.pdf.Document pdfDocument = new com.aspose.pdf.Document("C:\\Users\\Sath Tech\\Desktop\\Onepager.pdf");

DocumentBuilderFactory dbFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();

javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder dBuilder = dbFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
org.w3c.dom.Document doc = dBuilder.parse(fXmlFile);


org.w3c.dom.NodeList nList = doc.getElementsByTagName("fileSegments");

Map map = new java.util.HashMap();

for (int temp = 0; temp < nList.getLength(); temp++)


org.w3c.dom.Node nNode = nList.item(temp);

//System.out.println("\nCurrent Element :" + nNode.getNodeName());

if (nNode.getNodeType() == org.w3c.dom.Node.ELEMENT_NODE)

org.w3c.dom.Element eElement = (org.w3c.dom.Element)nNode;

String source = eElement.getElementsByTagName("source").item(0).getTextContent();
String translation = eElement.getElementsByTagName("translation").item(0).getTextContent();

Hi Hashmat,

Thanks for your inquiry. After initial investigation we have fount that your source text(XML file) has different formatting than text in PDF file, so API is not searching the text. E.g.

XML source text(single line): RESUME LT COL ® MUSSARAT NAEEM
PDF text(two lines): RESUME

We have logged the issue as PDFNEWJAVA-34312 in our issue tracking system for further investigation and resolution. We will keep you updated about the issue resolution progress.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Best Regards,
