pdfGeneratorEngine Either “IMAGE_MAGICK”/”ITEXT” This will used for pdf generator engine.


Web Service URL: http://{serverName}:{port}/dcma/rest/convertTiffToPdf

Sample client code using apache commons http client:-

private static void convertTiffToPdf() {
		HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
		String url = "http://localhost:8080/dcma/rest/convertTiffToPdf";
		PostMethod mPost = new PostMethod(url);
		File file1 = new File("C:\\sample\\US-Invoice.tif");
		Part[] parts = new Part[4];
		try {
			parts[0] = new FilePart(file1.getName(), file1);
			parts[1] = new StringPart("inputParams", "");
			parts[2] = new StringPart("outputParams", "");
			parts[3] = new StringPart("pdfGeneratorEngine", "IMAGE_MAGICK");
			MultipartRequestEntity entity = new MultipartRequestEntity(parts, mPost.getParams());
			int statusCode = client.executeMethod(mPost);
			if (statusCode == 200) {
				System.out.println("Web service executed successfully..");
				InputStream in = mPost.getResponseBodyAsStream();
				String outputFilePath = "C:\\sample\\";
				File f = new File(outputFilePath);
				FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(f);
				try {
					byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
					int len =;
					while (len > 0) {
						fos.write(buf, 0, len);
						len =;
				} finally {
					if (fos != null) {
			} else if (statusCode == 403) {
				System.out.println("Invalid username/password..");
			} else {
		} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
			System.err.println("File not found for processing.");
		} catch (HttpException e) {
		} catch (IOException e) {
		} finally {
			if (mPost != null) {
