Convert PDF to Text in Java


This Gist provides the details on how to convert PDF to TXT using Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for Java.
In one of the scenarios, we are going to accomplish our requirement, by first reading the PDF file from local drive using File instance, then uploading it to Cloud storage using uploadFile(...)method of WordsApi, and perform the conversion using getDocumentWithFormat(...) method. After successful conversion, the resultant file is saved in cloud storage. For complete information, please visit Convert PDF to TXT in Java.
