How to validate a PowerPoint PPTX Presentation in Java

Today’s tutorial will demonstrate how to apply a Cloudmersive API to instantly begin validating PPTX files.

We will be begin by using Jitpack to dynamically compile our library. First we need a reference to the repository in our Maven POM file, as you see here:

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>jitpack.io</id>
<url>https://jitpack.io</url>
</repository>
</repositories>

Then a reference for our dependency:

<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>com.github.Cloudmersive</groupId>
<artifactId>Cloudmersive.APIClient.Java</artifactId>
<version>v2.32</version>
</dependency>
</dependencies>

Finally, all that’s left to do is call validateDocumentPptxValidation:

// Import classes:
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiClient;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiException;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.Configuration;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.auth.*;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.ValidateDocumentApi;
ApiClient defaultClient = Configuration.getDefaultApiClient();// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
ApiKeyAuth Apikey = (ApiKeyAuth) defaultClient.getAuthentication("Apikey");
Apikey.setApiKey("YOUR API KEY");
// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)
//Apikey.setApiKeyPrefix("Token");
ValidateDocumentApi apiInstance = new ValidateDocumentApi();
File inputFile = new File("/path/to/file.txt"); // File | Input file to perform the operation on.
try {
DocumentValidationResult result = apiInstance.validateDocumentPptxValidation(inputFile);
System.out.println(result);
} catch (ApiException e) {
System.err.println("Exception when calling ValidateDocumentApi#validateDocumentPptxValidation");
e.printStackTrace();
}

Our response will include the validity of the file, definite errors, and warnings of possible problems.
