Sample Java code to use PDFTron SDK for direct, high-quality conversion between PDF, XPS, EMF, SVG, TIFF, PNG, JPEG, and other image formats ('pdftron.PDF.Convert' namespace). The sample also shows how to convert any printable document (ex. TXT, RTF, Word, HTML, MS Office, DXF, DWG, etc) to PDF or XPS using a universal document converter.
