Hi Nayyer Shahbaz,

Thank you for the information provided.

Please confirm if the only Aspose.pdf for java is enough for the all above mentioned features to be incorporated.

I have read html to pdf conversion is needed Aspose.Word for java. If aspose.pdf is good enough to achieve all features which we are looking for.

One more: We need to generate one barcode also and add in pdf file, please suggest if these all included in Aspose.pdf aswell.

Thanks,
Shivaji

Hi Shivaji,
All your above stated requirements can be accomplished using Aspose.Pdf for Java and I have shared the details/status regarding the features currently not supported by this API.

I have read html to pdf conversion is needed Aspose.Word for java. If aspose.pdf is good enough to achieve all features which we are looking for.
Aspose.Words for Java has its own document manipulation and rendering engine and it also offers the feature to load HTML files and transform them to PDF format. However the usage of Aspose.Words for Java is based upon your own choice.

One more: We need to generate one barcode also and add in pdf file, please suggest if these all included in Aspose.pdf aswell.
In order to programatically generate BarCode image, you need to try using Aspose.BarCode for Java, save the BarCode in image format and place it inside PDF document.

Should you have any further query, please feel free to contact.

Hi Nayyer,

Thank you for the reply and information provided.

I had few more clarifications on the same.

1. I tried using the Aspose.Pdf for conversion of HTML to PDF, I see its not same as Aspose.Words, the alignment and text is not looking same as html preview, please suggest me as how can i achieve this using aspose.pdf package.

2. Using Aspose.Pdf, I was trying to leave margin for the first page of the pdf during html to pdf converions. I would needed this to add an image in that page just above to Footer. Please provide me some sample which i can try.

Please suggest me some workarounds for the above mentioned.

Thanks,
Shivaji

Hi Shivaji,

Thanks for sharing the details and sorry for the delayed response.

Aspose.Pdf and Aspose.Words have their own rendering engines and there might be difference in output being generated by both API’s. However if you are facing any issue while converting HTML file to PDF format, please share the resource file, so that we can test the conversion in our environment.

I am afraid you might not be able to make any changes when HTML is being transformed to PDF format. However once the resultant PDF file is generated, you can update page dimensions or add margin information, so that any further manipulation i.e. image addition etc can be performed. For further details, please visit Update Page Dimensions

We are sorry for your inconvenience.

In addition to above reply, you may also use PageInfo object to set page margins while converting HTML to PDF as following

HHtmlLoadOptions htmlLoadOptions = new HtmlLoadOptions();

MarginInfo marginInfo= new MarginInfo();

marginInfo.setTop(20);

marginInfo.setBottom(40);

htmlLoadOptions.getPageInfo().setMargin(marginInfo);

Document doc=new Document("input.html",htmlLoadOptions);

doc.save("output.pdf");


Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance.

Hi Shivaji,

Thanks for sharing the resource files.

I have tested the scenario and have managed to reproduce the same issue that Arabic text is not properly being rendered in resultant PDF document. The Arabic contents appear in LTR format instead of RTL. For the
sake of correction, I have logged this problem as
PDFNEWJAVA-35023 in
our issue tracking system. We will further look into the details of this
problem and will keep you updated on the status of correction. Please be
patient and spare us little time. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Besides this, we are pleased to hear that your requirement of setting pages margin information during HTML to PDF conversion is accomplished. Should you have any further query, please feel free to contact.

Hi Nayyer,

Thank you for logging this issue.
Also, did you verify the issue with Listing(ul/ol) tags? is it same as RTL issue.

Please let me know if more details required.

Thanks,
Shivaji

Hi Nayyer,

Hi Shivaji,

As per my observations, when converting HTML page with RTL language, the OL elements are properly being displayed. Can you please share some details regarding the issue which you are facing.

For your reference, I have also attached the resultant PDF generated over my end.

Hi Shivaji,

The product team has started investigating the above stated issue and have observed that respective issue is also appearing Aspose.Pdf for .NET. As Aspose.Pdf for Java is ported from Aspose.Pdf for .NET, so first the team needs to resolve the issue in base product and then same resolution will be ported to Java release. However unless the issue is completely analyzed, currently its quite difficult to estimate the timelines by which this problem will actually be resolved. Nevertheless, as soon as we have some definite updates regarding its resolution, we will be more than happy to update you with the status of correct.

Hi Nayyer,

I have already attached with arabic and english converted pdf files.
If you see the arabic pdf file, the bullets(ul) is not displayed properly.

Please let me know if you required more details.

Thanks,
Shivaji

Hi Shivaji,

Thanks for sharing the details.

I can see that bullets are not properly rendered in FinalPDF_AR.pdf shared earlier but I am afraid I could not find the source/input HTML from which this document is generated. Can you please double check at your end.

Hi,

I have attached now, as txt file(changed extension to txt, as html not able to attach).

But content might have been changed.

Please check and let me know if you want me to regenerate and provide you the exact output.
