Apple Products are known for having extremely high-quality cameras with the ability to capture dynamic and high-definition images using your easily accessible mobile device. This means you do not need to carry around traditional, heavy cameras that must be handled with care due to their fragility. Instead, your phone can be used to seize the moment whenever inspiration hits. Furthermore, Apple devices can take Live Photos, which are somewhat like GIFs in that they capture a short period of movement while the picture is taken. Unlike GIFs, however, Live Photos also record an audio clip to go with the image.
These images, though they can easily meet the needs of any project due to their clarity and definition, are not saved in an easily transferable format. The HEIC file format is the default for all iPhone and Apple images, which is how they can retain their quality, but this format is not compatible with many different Operating Systems. While Macs now have the ability to read HEIC, Windows 10 does not have any built-in support and needs a third-party viewer to access them.
The following APIs will allow you to instantly convert HEIC image files to JPG, GIF, PNG, and more for improved compatibility across devices. However, both APIs also support over 100 image file formats, so you could convert any image you want into any other format by simply specifying the formats in the function input. The first API shown below can convert a singular image between file formats, while the second can process and convert multi-page file formats.

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.
In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.
What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.
In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **
var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word
var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

On March 16th, 2021, Java 16 was GA. With this new release, tons of new exciting features have been added. Check out the release notes to know more about these changes in detail. This article’s focus will be on Java Records, which got delivered with JEP 395. Records were first introduced in JDK 14 as a preview feature proposed by JEP 359, and with JDK 15, they remained in preview with JEP 384. However, with JDK 16, Records are no longer in preview.
I have picked Records because they are definitely the most favored feature added in Java 16, according to this Twitter poll by Java Champion Mala Gupta.
I also conducted a similar survey, but it was focused on features from Java 8 onwards. The results were not unexpected, as Java 8 is still widely used. Very unfortunate, though, as tons of new features and improvements are added to newer Java versions. But in terms of features, Java 8 was definitely a game-changer from a developer perspective.
So let’s discuss what the fuss is about Java Records.

For sharing documents both in hardcopy and digitally, the PDF file format is the preferred choice.Because of its high-versatility and compatibility between different operating systems, the PDF format allows users to create, edit, encrypt, and lock important documents for viewing on any browser or with any PDF viewing application such as Adobe Acrobat. Furthermore, its flexibility means that almost any other file type can be converted into PDF format without loss of quality or corruption of formatting. This means that complex file types such as DOCX and XLSX documents can be converted and shared easily in a protected format that will limit the chance of accidental edits or formatting errors.
However, if you are planning to display examples or insert an image of a PDF document in a separate file or web page, converting your PDF files to an image array will be more useful. For example, if you are creating a PowerPoint showing the on-boarding process for your organization and need to include images of different documents or contracts associated with the process, converting your PDF files into JPG will allow you to quickly and effortlessly insert the image and scale or crop it according to the needs of your presentation. When performing a similar process for a web page, having your document available as a PNG image will optimize it for viewing online within your website. It also prevents users from downloading and editing the document as would be possible with a PDF.
In this article, we will review three Conversion APIs that will allow you to convert any PDF document into an image. This includes conversion to a PNG or JPG array with one image created per page in your document. We will also discuss how you can merge and stack your PDF pages for conversion into a single PNG, or “tall” image.
Our goal for this tutorial is to simplify and improve your versatility for document display and sharing. Furthermore, as most documents can be converted to PDF, you can apply these APIs to any file, post-PDF-conversion. This will greatly increase your deliverable scope and production value.
The first API that we will discuss here provides an automated process for converting a PDF document to a PNG array. As an array, one PNG image will be created of each page within the PDF document, meaning you can choose specific pages for use without need for extra input commands.

Convert Office Open Document Text File (ODT) to standard PDF, DOCX, PNG, and JPG using Java.
Microsoft has maintained its position in the spotlight for formatted document creation and editing for good reason. Its extreme ease of use and lack of a learning curve has transformed the Microsoft Office Suite into a household name for most computer users in the United States as well as globally. This is propagated further through its almost ubiquitous use in education, as students are raised and taught using these applications.
The issue that arises with these programs, however, is their operation costs. For Apple and other non-Windows-based Operating Systems, the purchasing fees for Office can be steep. This, then, creates a paywall separating potential users from programs to which they are already accustomed. As an answer this problem, Microsoft created the OpenOffice application, which is a free, opensource version of the classic Office Suite. Within this application, you can perform almost all of the same functions as Office Suite, including creating text documents like one would with Microsoft Word. These text documents can be made using OpenOffice Writer, and are formatted using the .ODT file type. While this file type can be opened and saved using OpenOffice Writer and Word, in order to convert the file to a different format such as PDF you will need to run it through a conversion process.
The following APIs will allow you to convert your ODT documents to PDF, DOCX, PNG, and JPG for use in whatever way you need. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a simple and efficient means for instantly converting your ODT files without needing to find or download any extraneous programming.
