Hi @Basha!

Here's a code to help you with your problem statement. I have used ZeonPad to convert .msg to .pdf and used PDFBox to merge the pdfs files:

import java.io.File;

public class pdf {


public static void main(String[] args) {

// TODO Auto-generated method stub

String path = "path to folder";

File folder = new File(path);

File[] listOfFiles = folder.listFiles();


for (int i = 0; i < listOfFiles.length; i++) {

String name=listOfFiles[i].getName();

//System.out.println(name);

String substring = name.length() > 4 ? name.substring(name.length() - 4) : name;

//System.out.println(substring);

if (substring.equals(".msg")) {

String fullname=path+"\\\\"+name;

System.out.println(fullname);

System.out.println(substring);

String pdfname=fullname.substring(0, fullname.length() - 4);

pdfname=pdfname+".pdf";

System.out.println(pdfname);

OutlookToPdf outlookToPdf = new OutlookToPdf();

OutlookToPdf.convert(fullname, pdfname);

}


}

File file = new File("path of the new file") 

PDDocument document = PDDocument.load(file);

PDFMergerUtility PDFmerger = new PDFMergerUtility(); 

PDFmerger.setDestinationFileName(path+"/merged.pdf");

for (int i = 0; i < listOfFiles.length; i++) {

String name=listOfFiles[i].getName();

//System.out.println(name);

String substring = name.length() > 4 ? name.substring(name.length() - 4) : name;

//System.out.println(substring);

if (substring.equals(".pdf")) {

String fullname=path+"\\\\"+name;

//System.out.println(fullname);

PDFmerger.addSource(fullname);


}

PDFmerger.mergeDocuments();


}

}

}

Hi Kishan,

To solve this error, you have to set up the PDFBox jar. Please follow these steps:

  1. Download the jar by clicking on this link
  2. Open your project in Eclipse IDE
  3. Then right-click on your project folder in eclipse. 
  4. Go to "Build Path" -> "Configure Build Path"
  5. In the "Java Build Path" section, under the "Libraries" tab, click on "Add External JARs" button.
  6. Choose the JAR file that you downloaded. Click on "Apply and Close"
  7. Close the window
  8. In your code, add the below import:
    import org.apache.pdfbox.*; 

This should solve your error.
