Hi Tilman,

thank you for your quick reply. I just can't follow at all???

As an example I would like to start with the example "HelloWorld.java", which should give me the pdf-File "HelloWorld.pdf".
To make it easy I start with the commandline-tools.
The only one that is creating a pdf is "PrintPDF".

When I use it as:
|java -jar pdfbox-app-2.0.2.jar ||TextToPDF [||] HelloWorld.pdf HelloWorld.java

|I get the the printed java listing as a pdf.
But what should I use as |[OPTIONS]|? The compiled HelloWorld.class...
My tests with |PrintPDF| where also frustrating...
I am really just lost.

Thank you

j
