Aspose.Words Features Missing in Apache POI
As already described in previous articles, there are operations with documents that are faster and more conveniently to perform using Aspose.Words than Apache POI. But there are also operations that are not provided by Apache POI (HWPF and XWPF). You can try to achieve the desired result using auxiliary tools and options, but even if successful, it will be quite expensive.
The following table contains some of the popular features supported by Aspose.Words and missed in Apache POI (HWPF and XWPF):
|Aspose.Words feature||Corresponding documentation article or section|
|Loading and saving documents in formats other than Microsoft Word.
As a result, you can perform conversion between all popular document formats. For example, Word to PDF, HTML to Markdown, DOCX to JPG, PDF to Word, Image to PDF, and others
|The “Create or Load a Document” section
The “Save a Document” section
The “Convert a Document” section
|Mail Merge||The ”Mail Merge and Reporting” section|
|Rendering||The ”Rendering” section|
|Join multiple documents, including combine formatting of documents when importing content||The “Insert and Append Documents” article|
|Find and Replace||The “Find and Replace” article|
|Track changes in documents||The “Track Changes in a Document” article|
|Protect or encrypt a document in a variety of ways||The “Protect or Encrypt a Document” section|
|Manipulate tables||The “Working with Tables” section|
