Hi I am using Pdf Corwd for html to PDF.

My problem is that its generate 0 Kb file for my html.
I am not geetting what is the problem.

Here is the sample code which i using :

public void convertToPDF(String htmlPath, String pdfFilePath) throws IOException


FileOutputStream fileStream = null;



// create an API client instance

Client client = new Client("username", "password");

// convert a web page and save the PDF to a file

fileStream = new FileOutputStream(pdfFilePath);

client.convertURI(htmlPath, fileStream);


catch(PdfcrowdError why) {


logger.error("Error Generating PDF : ", why);


catch(IOException exc) {

It looks like convertURI() failed and threw an exception. What error message are you getting?

As said above, this usually occurs when the API returns an error. Are you getting any error message?
