PDF to JavaFX conversion – How to use NetBeans plugin (Part 2)

47 sec read

As a continuation to the previous tutorial, I am going to show you an alternative method to convert PDF files to JavaFX files in our NetBeans plugin.

First of all create a project in Netbeans and locate the project folder in the file explorer, I have created a project called Tutorials. If like me you are using Window 7, then your project folder can be found in the location above by default. Copy/cut and paste the PDF you want to convert into the src folder then return to Netbeans for the final steps. Once the PDF file is in the src directory, you should be able to see it in the projects tab in Netbeans. Right click on the PDF file and a context menu will pop up with an option to Convert PDF to JavaFX. 

 Once the PDF files have finished converting, right click on the project and choose which file you want the program to start on (preferably the first page). Refer to my previous tutorial on how to choose which file the program starts on.

Once that is successful, click one the Run and you guessed it. Your PDF files are in JavaFX. Which method would you prefer to use.

So there it is. Your PDF files effortlessly turned into JavaFx. What would you like to see next?
