    Default Convert DOC,XLS to PDF with Java

    My team came across a new solution which allow conversion of ms office formats, especially doc and xls to pdf. Solution is provided by this guy: DOC to PDF with Java

    How it works:

    import officetools.OfficeFile; // from officetools.jar
     
    FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(new File("test.doc")); 
    FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(new File("test.pdf"));
     
    OfficeFile f = new OfficeFile(fis,"localhost","8100", false);
     
    f.convert(fos,"pdf");


    Are you using a similar solution in Java or PHP?

    I am currently trying to find more solutions and to compare them for quality and speed.

    Thanks.

    You can convert your Excel document to Pdf in java using Aspose.Cells for Java here is the link of the API: **** Link removed ****

    It is one of many important products from Aspose which uses cloud technology that allow you to create(if you dont have MS office installed), read and convert your MS office document to any other format online.
