Our implementation of these functionality is tied to the APIs of these particular third party libraries. So as of now you cannot wire another third party library that provides similar functionality.

Hi Ruben,

Aspose has discontinued Aspose PDF Kit for Java and they have replaced it with Aspose.Pdf for Java.

So we now integrate with that. See documentation.progress.com/.../index.html

An update - We have 4.2 release tentatively planned for April 30 where we would have open source alternatives implemented for MS Access Import, Aspose Words (Using Apache POI and docx4j) and Aspose PDF (Using Apache PDFBox)

Till that time please use trial versions of these if available or use Public Cloud.

Hi Mani,

For example, an open source PDF writer, Jasper Reports (en.wikipedia.org/.../JasperReports).

Ok. I understand...

I would like test Aspose Words and Aspose PDF Java Kit. But Java Kit no longer exist. So .jar not compatible with Rollbase. For Aspose Words the trial version doesn't give the license. So is not possible to test this software.

Request you to use a trial account on Public Cloud for such testing if you are not able to procure trial versions. We are working on improving the use of Third party libraries like these in future releases

Is there any update on this (forget about the Aspose Words part)? As Araqiel mentioned the Aspose PDF Kit is no longer available as a product (discontinued). Any other solutions for private cloud / PDF generation with native integration with Rollbase ?

Hi Ruben,

You can use PD4ML for this. You can get the trial jars from below URL:

That is what I wanted to hear :), thanks Anoop!

I just installed RB4.2, but I am still getting the following message when trying to map a PDF template(I think it's still referring to the Aspose PDF trial version I installed once):


Anything else I need to do for this to use the Apache PDFBox?

Posted by Ruben Dröge on 14-Jun-2016 03:15

Never mind. Still had a .jar file of Aspose PDF in my tomcat lib, after removing that it worked fine.
