Hello experts,
I am developing client-server application using Java. One of functions in my app is the conversion from popular text formats like .txt, .rtf, .doc, .docx to pdf. I found JODConverter which based on Open/Libre office core as the most appropriate solution for my goal but faced with some internationalization ploblems: I get pdf file with some mistakes after conversation arabic text file. Here is the sample of my code:
OfficeManager officeManager = new DefaultOfficeManagerConfiguration().setMaxTasksPerProcess(Integer.parseInt(config.getProperty("openoffice.tasks"))).setOfficeHome(config.getProperty("openoffice.path")).setProcessManager(new PureJavaProcessManager()).setPortNumber(Integer.parseInt(config.getProperty("openoffice.port"))).buildOfficeManager();
officeManager.start();
officeManager.convert(src, dest);

Open in new window

Has anyone faced with the internationalization issues in JODConverter? Is there any other free tools (Java or command-line) which can convert .txt, .rtf, .doc, .docx to pdf with high quality?
Thanks in advance.
