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.
