【Example 1】Converting Word to PDF

import com.spire.doc.Document;
import com.spire.doc.FileFormat;
import com.spire.doc.ToPdfParameterList;

public class WordtoPDF {
    public static void main(String[] args)  {

        //Load the Word Document
        Document doc = new Document();
        doc.loadFromFile("test1.docx");

        //create an instance of ToPdfParameterList.
        ToPdfParameterList ppl=new ToPdfParameterList();

        //embeds full fonts by default when IsEmbeddedAllFonts is set to true.
        ppl.isEmbeddedAllFonts(true);

        //set setDisableLink to true to remove the hyperlink effect for the result PDF page.
        //set setDisableLink to false to preserve the hyperlink effect for the result PDF page.
        ppl.setDisableLink(true);

        //Set the output image quality as 40% of the original image. 80% is the default setting.
        doc.setJPEGQuality(40);

        //Save to file.
        doc.saveToFile("ToPDF.pdf",FileFormat.PDF);
    }
}

【Example 2】Converting Word to Other Formats

import com.spire.doc.Document;
import com.spire.doc.FileFormat;
import com.spire.doc.documents.ImageType;

import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;

public class ConvertWordToOtherFormats {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {

        //Load the Word Document
        Document doc = new Document();
        doc.loadFromFile("test1.docx");

        //Save the first page to a BufferedImage
        BufferedImage image= doc.saveToImages(0, ImageType.Bitmap);

        //Write the image data to a .png file
        File file= new File("out/ToPNG.png");
        ImageIO.write(image, "PNG", file);

        //Save the Word document as SVG format
        doc.saveToFile("out/ToSVG.svg",FileFormat.SVG);

        //Save the Word document as RTF format
        doc.saveToFile("out/ToRTF.rtf",FileFormat.Rtf);

        //Save the Word document as XPS format
        doc.saveToFile("out/ToXPS.xps",FileFormat.XPS);

        //Save the Word document as XML format
        doc.saveToFile("out/ToXML.xml",FileFormat.Xml);

        //Save the Word document as TXT format
        doc.saveToFile("out/ToTXT.txt",FileFormat.Txt);
    }
}
