Building the API client library requires:

  1. Java 1.7+
  2. Maven


To use Aspose.Tasks Cloud SDK for Java you need to register an account with Aspose Cloud and lookup/create Client ID and Client Secret at Cloud Dashboard. There is free quota available. For more details, see Aspose Cloud Pricing.


Install from Maven

Add Aspose Cloud repository to your application pom.xml

        <name>Aspose Java API</name>

Install from source

To install the API client library to your local Maven repository, simply execute:

mvn clean install

To deploy it to a remote Maven repository instead, configure the settings of the repository and execute:

mvn clean deploy

Refer to the OSSRH Guide for more information.

Maven users

Add this dependency to your project’s POM:



At first generate the JAR by executing:

mvn clean package

Then manually install the following JARs:

  • target/aspose-tasks-cloud-21.10.0.jar
  • target/lib/*.jar

Convert MS Project® MPP to PDF in Java

// Start README example

// if baseUrl is null, TasksApi uses default https://api.aspose.cloud
TasksApi tasksApi = new TasksApi(clientId, clientSecret, baseUrl);

String localPath = PathUtil.get(localFolder, fileName);
String remotePath = PathUtil.get(remoteFolder, remoteName);

UploadFileRequest uploadRequest = new UploadFileRequest(Files.readAllBytes(Paths.get(localPath)), remotePath, null);

GetReportPdfRequest request = new GetReportPdfRequest(remoteFileName, ReportType.MILESTONES.getValue(), null, null);

File result = tasksApi.getReportPdf(request);

// End README example
