Hi All,

I would like to know how to convert a doc file into a tiff file.
It would be very helpful for me if anyone can provide source code as well.
I know that there lot of third party tools to do this.
But i want to do within java.

Thanks a lot.

Please do take the naming policy seriously. That is one of the things we really do stress on here at the ranch.

Hi there,

Also please note that Javaranch is NotACodeMill, we try to nudge people in the right direction as opposed to giving out source code

Can I ask why you don't want to use a third party library?

For an all-Java approach I think the best option is to use a library like Apache POI for reading DOC files. You would then write code that uses the POI API for getting at the content and style information of the document, and use that to create an in-memory image (like a BufferedImage). The image can then be stored as a TIFF file. This would be a decent-sized project for even moderately complex DOC files, though - probably at least a week or two.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
