Unable to use Document() method

hope you are doing well…!
I am using Android gradle with JDK 1.8.
I am able to implement only implementation ‘com.aspose:words:1.0’ from jCenter other dpendancy like compile group: ‘com.aspose’, name: ‘aspose-words’, version: ‘18.7’ getting problem.

ERROR: Failed to resolve: com.aspose:aspose-words:18.7

with ‘com.aspose:words:1.0’ able to get Document function
but when I passing path as argument it is not accepting.
also do not have save method tried with String Builder still no have save method to export the file


dependencies {
implementation ‘com.aspose:words:1.0’


java code

try {
String dir = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString();

Document doc = new Document(…path…); //problem here not accepting aurg.; //save method not defined
Also Tried

                   Document wpd = new Document(dir + "template.doc");
           + "output.pdf", SaveFormat.PDF);

} catch (Exception e) {


Please try adding the following configurations to your build.gradle file:

maven {
    url "" }


compile (
        group: 'com.aspose',
        name: 'aspose-words',
        version: '20.10',
        classifier: 'jdk17')

Hope, this helps.
