Create Mail Merge Template in Microsoft Word

  • Create a new Word document.
  • Place your cursor where you want to add a merge field.

MS Word Mail Merge Template

  • Click the Insert menu, Quick Parts, Fields…
  • In the Field names select MergeField and enter the field name and press OK.

Merge Field

  • To create merge field for image you need to prefix the field name with Image:
  • When finished save the document.

The Mail Merge Code Snippet

The code snippet reads the mail merge template from a file called Receipt.docx. For the image we use a duke.png. Both of these files must be placed in the /src/main/resources directory in your maven project so that the code can read it.

package org.kodejava.example.spire;

import com.spire.doc.Document;
import com.spire.doc.FileFormat;
import com.spire.doc.reporting.MergeImageFieldEventArgs;
import com.spire.doc.reporting.MergeImageFieldEventHandler;

import java.awt.Dimension;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.NumberFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Locale;

public class MailMergeExample {
    public static final Locale LOCALE = new Locale("id", "ID");
    public static final DateFormat DATE_FORMAT = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMMM-yyyy", LOCALE);
    public static final NumberFormat NUMBER_FORMAT = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(LOCALE);

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String[] fieldNames = new String[]{
                "academicYear",
                "registrationNumber",
                "fullName",
                "gender",
                "telephone",
                "address",
                "paymentAmount",
                "inWords",
                "paymentDate",
                "receivedBy",
                "picture"
        };
        String[] fieldValues = new String[]{
                "2021/2022",
                "0001/REG/2021",
                "Foo Bar",
                "M",
                "081234567890",
                "Sudirman Street 100",
                NUMBER_FORMAT.format(1575000),
                "One Million Five Hundred Seventy Five Thousand",
                DATE_FORMAT.format(new Date()),
                "John Doe",
                "/duke.png"
        };

        try {
            Document document = new Document();
            document.loadFromStream(MailMergeExample.class.getResourceAsStream("/Receipt.docx"), FileFormat.Auto);
            document.getMailMerge().MergeImageField = new MergeImageFieldEventHandler() {
                @Override
                public void invoke(Object o, MergeImageFieldEventArgs field) {
                    field.setPictureSize(new Dimension(66, 88));

                    String path = field.getImageFileName();
                    if (path != null && !path.isEmpty()) {
                        try {
                            field.setImage(MailMergeExample.class.getResourceAsStream(path));
                        } catch (Exception e) {
                            e.printStackTrace();
                        }
                    }
                }
            };
            document.getMailMerge().execute(fieldNames, fieldValues);

            String fileName = "Receipt.pdf";
            FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(fileName);
            document.saveToStream(fos, FileFormat.PDF);
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}

Running the code will create a file called Receipt.pdf with the content as shown in the image below.

How do I format EditText for currency input in Android?

The following Android code snippet shows you how to customize the input value format of an EditText component for accepting currency number. To format the input value we will create a text watcher class called MoneyTextWatcher, this class implements of the android.text.TextWatcher interface. To apply this text watcher class we call the the addTextChangedListener() method of the EditText object and pass an instance of MoneyTextWatcher.

package org.kodejava.android;

import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.TextView;
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;

import java.math.BigDecimal;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    private EditText editText;
    private TextView textView;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        editText = findViewById(R.id.editText);
        editText.addTextChangedListener(new MoneyTextWatcher(editText));

        textView = findViewById(R.id.textView);
    }

    public void doGetValue(View view) {
        BigDecimal value = MoneyTextWatcher.parseCurrencyValue(editText.getText().toString());
        textView.setText(String.valueOf(value));
    }
}

When the EditText input is changed the afterTextChanged() method of the text watcher will be called. In this method we’ll take the input text and format the input value with currency symbol and a number, this is done by the NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance() object. The static helper method parseCurrencyValue() will get the number part of the EditText by removing the currency symbol and return the input number.

package org.kodejava.android;

import android.text.Editable;
import android.text.TextWatcher;
import android.util.Log;
import android.widget.EditText;

import java.lang.ref.WeakReference;
import java.math.BigDecimal;
import java.math.RoundingMode;
import java.text.NumberFormat;
import java.util.Locale;
import java.util.Objects;

public class MoneyTextWatcher implements TextWatcher {
    public static final NumberFormat numberFormat = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(new Locale("id", "ID"));
    private final WeakReference<EditText> editTextWeakReference;

    public MoneyTextWatcher(EditText editText) {
        editTextWeakReference = new WeakReference<>(editText);
        numberFormat.setMaximumFractionDigits(0);
        numberFormat.setRoundingMode(RoundingMode.FLOOR);
    }

    @Override
    public void beforeTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int count, int after) {
    }

    @Override
    public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count) {
    }

    @Override
    public void afterTextChanged(Editable s) {
        EditText editText = editTextWeakReference.get();
        if (editText == null || editText.getText().toString().equals("")) {
            return;
        }
        editText.removeTextChangedListener(this);

        BigDecimal parsed = parseCurrencyValue(editText.getText().toString());
        String formatted = numberFormat.format(parsed);

        editText.setText(formatted);
        editText.setSelection(formatted.length());
        editText.addTextChangedListener(this);
    }

    public static BigDecimal parseCurrencyValue(String value) {
        try {
            String replaceRegex = String.format("[%s,.\\s]", Objects.requireNonNull(numberFormat.getCurrency()).getDisplayName());
            String currencyValue = value.replaceAll(replaceRegex, "");
            return new BigDecimal(currencyValue);
        } catch (Exception e) {
            Log.e("MyApp", e.getMessage(), e);
        }
        return BigDecimal.ZERO;
    }
}

The following animation is the result of our code snippet above.

How do I get Android Device ID or IMEI?

The following code snippets shows you how to get a Device ID of an Android phone. To be able to read the Device ID you need to update the AndroidManifest.xml file and add the READ_PHONE_STATE permission.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
          package="org.kodejava.android">

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />

    ...
    ...
</manifest>
package org.kodejava.android;

import android.Manifest;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.pm.PackageManager;
import android.os.Build;
import android.provider.Settings;
import android.telephony.TelephonyManager;
import android.util.Log;
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import androidx.core.app.ActivityCompat;
import androidx.core.content.ContextCompat;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    private static final int PERMISSIONS_READ_PHONE_STATE = 1;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
            ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(this, new String[]{Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE}, PERMISSIONS_READ_PHONE_STATE);
        }

        String deviceId = null;

        if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.Q) {
            deviceId = Settings.Secure.getString(getApplicationContext().getContentResolver(), Settings.Secure.ANDROID_ID);
        } else {
            TelephonyManager telephonyManager = (TelephonyManager) getSystemService(Context.TELEPHONY_SERVICE);
            if (telephonyManager.getImei() != null) {
                deviceId = telephonyManager.getImei();
            } else if (telephonyManager.getMeid() != null) {
                deviceId = telephonyManager.getMeid();
            }
        }

        Log.d("MyApp", "Device ID: " + deviceId);
    }
}

How do I print to a Bluetooth thermal printer in Android?

In this example we are going to create a simple Android application to print texts to a Bluetooth thermal printer. We’ll be using the Android library for ESC/POS Thermal Printer to develop this example.

We begin by creating an Android project with an Empty Activity. After the project is created we need to edit the app/build.gradle to add the required dependencies and the repository from which it will be downloaded.

...
...

dependencies {
    ...
    ...
    implementation 'com.github.dantsu:escpos-thermalprinter-android:2.0.11'
}

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
    }
}

Next, add the permission to access Bluetooth in the AndriodManifest.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
          package="org.kodejava.android">

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />

    ...
    ...
</manifest>

Let’s now jump to the code snippet that will actually print our store receipt to the printer. The steps are quite simple.

After added the uses-permission in the AndroidManigest.xml we also need to check permission in the application, you’ll do it like this.

if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.BLUETOOTH) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
    ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(this, new String[]{Manifest.permission.BLUETOOTH}, MainActivity.PERMISSION_BLUETOOTH);
}

Open the connection to Bluetooth printer by calling the selectFirstPaired() method of the BluetoothPrintersConnections class. This will give us an instance of BluetoothConnection. If the connection is good we create an instance of EscPosPrinter by passing some parameters like the connection, printer dpi, width in millimeter and the printer’s number of character per line.

BluetoothConnection connection = BluetoothPrintersConnections.selectFirstPaired();
EscPosPrinter printer = new EscPosPrinter(connection, 203, 48f, 32);

The next step is to prepare the text to be printed and called the printFormattedText() of the printer object and pass the text to be printed.

String text = "[C]Hello World!\n";
printer.printFormattedText(text);

Here is the full code snippet for our application.

package org.kodejava.android;

import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.NumberFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Locale;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    public static final int PERMISSION_BLUETOOTH = 1;

    private final Locale locale = new Locale("id", "ID");
    private final DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy hh:mm:ss a", locale);
    private final NumberFormat nf = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(locale);

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    }

    public void doPrint(View view) {
        try {
            if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.BLUETOOTH) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(this, new String[]{Manifest.permission.BLUETOOTH}, MainActivity.PERMISSION_BLUETOOTH);
            } else {
                BluetoothConnection connection = BluetoothPrintersConnections.selectFirstPaired();
                if (connection != null) {
                    EscPosPrinter printer = new EscPosPrinter(connection, 203, 48f, 32);
                    final String text = "[C]<img>" + PrinterTextParserImg.bitmapToHexadecimalString(printer,
                            this.getApplicationContext().getResources().getDrawableForDensity(R.drawable.logo,
                                    DisplayMetrics.DENSITY_LOW, getTheme())) + "</img>\n" +

How do I read MySQL data from Android using JDBC?

This example show you how to connect and read data from MySQL database directly from Android. The following steps and code snippet will show you how to do it.

Add the MySQL JDBC driver into your project dependencies. Open the app/build.gradle file and add the dependency.

...
...

dependencies {
    ...
    ...
    implementation 'mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.49'
}

If you want to connect to MariaDB you can change the JDBC driver dependency using 'org.mariadb.jdbc:mariadb-java-client:1.8.0', also update the JDBC url in the code snippet by replacing mysql with mariadb.

Next, add internet permission to our application in AndroidManifest.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
          package="org.kodejava.android">

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

    ...
    ...

</manifest>

Let’s connect, read data from the database and display the information on the screen. In the code snippet we create an AsyncTask to read the information from the database. In the doInBackground() method we open a connection to the database, create a PreparedStatement, execute a query, get a ResultSet and read the information from it. We pack the data into a Map and return it.

After the doInBackground() method finish its execution the onPostExecute() method will be called. In this method we take the result, the Map returned by the doInBackground() method, and set the values into the TextView compoments for display.

package org.kodejava.android;

    public class InfoAsyncTask extends AsyncTask<Void, Void, Map<String, String>> {
        @Override
        protected Map<String, String> doInBackground(Void... voids) {
            Map<String, String> info = new HashMap<>();

            try (Connection connection = DriverManager.getConnection(URL, USER, PASSWORD)) {
                String sql = "SELECT name, address, phone_number FROM school_info LIMIT 1";
                PreparedStatement statement = connection.prepareStatement(sql);
                ResultSet resultSet = statement.executeQuery();
                if (resultSet.next()) {
                    info.put("name", resultSet.getString("name"));
                    info.put("address", resultSet.getString("address"));
                    info.put("phone_number", resultSet.getString("phone_number"));
                }                
            } catch (Exception e) {
                Log.e("InfoAsyncTask", "Error reading school information", e);
            }

            return info;
        }

        @Override
        protected void onPostExecute(Map<String, String> result) {
            if (!result.isEmpty()) {
                TextView textViewName = findViewById(R.id.textViewName);
                TextView textViewAddress = findViewById(R.id.textViewAddress);
                TextView textViewPhoneNumber = findViewById(R.id.textViewPhone);

                textViewName.setText(result.get("name"));
                textViewAddress.setText(result.get("address"));
                textViewPhoneNumber.setText(result.get("phone_number"));

I need to create a Microsoft Word Mail Merge document in my Java Spring MVC application. But running it in Ubuntu server resulting in a document that missing the default font use in the document, which is the Calibri font. So I need to install the font in Ubuntu to make the document looks as expected.

Here what I need to do to install the font in my Ubuntu box. Starts by updating the repository package list to get latest packages information for upgrades or new package installation.

sudo apt-get update

Then install FontForge in our system. FontForge is a free and open source font editor, but in this case it will help doing the font conversion in the installation script on the upcoming step.

sudo apt-get install fontforge

Install the Microsoft Cabinet file unpacker. This is required for the next script to successfully install the fonts.

sudo apt-get install cabextract

The following script will install Microsoft Vista TrueType Fonts (TTF) in Ubuntu. It includes the following fonts, Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia, and Corbel.

wget https://gist.github.com/maxwelleite/10774746/raw/ttf-vista-fonts-installer.sh -q -O - | sudo bash

Run the next command to see if the font successfully installed. You will see the Calibri fonts in the result if the fonts successfully installed.

fc-list | grep Calibri

Here are the list of installed Calibri fonts.

/usr/share/fonts/truetype/vista/calibriz.ttf: Calibri:style=Bold Italic
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/vista/calibrii.ttf: Calibri:style=Italic
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/vista/calibrib.ttf: Calibri:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/vista/calibri.ttf: Calibri:style=Regular

How do I create a generic class in Java?

In this example you will learn how to create a generic class in Java. In some of the previous post in this blog you might have read how to use generic for working with Java collection API such as List, Set and Map. Now it is time to learn to create a simple generic class.

As an example in this post will create a class called GenericMachine and we can plug different type of engine into this machine that will be use by the machine to operate. For this demo we will create two engine type, a DieselEngine and a JetEngine. So let’s see how the classes are implemented in generic.

package org.kodejava.examples.generic;

public class GenericMachine<T> {
    private T engine;

    public GenericMachine(T engine) {
        this.engine = engine;
    }

    private void start() {
        System.out.println("This machine running on: " + engine);
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        //
        // Creates a generic machine with diesel engine.
        //
        GenericMachine<DieselEngine> machine = new GenericMachine<>(new DieselEngine());
        machine.start();

        //
        // Creates another generic machine with jet engine.
        //
        GenericMachine<JetEngine> anotherMachine = new GenericMachine<>(new JetEngine());
        anotherMachine.start();
    }
}

Now, for the two engine class we will only create an empty class so that the GenericMachine class can be compile successfully. And here are the engine classes:

package org.kodejava.examples.generic;

public class DieselEngine {
}
package org.kodejava.examples.generic;

public class JetEngine {
}

The <T> in the class declaration tell that we want the GenericMachine class to have type parameter. We also use the T type parameter at the class constructor to pass the engine.

How do I convert java.util.TimeZone to java.time.ZoneId?

The following code snippet will show you how to convert the old java.util.TimeZone to java.time.ZoneId introduced in Java 8. In the first line of our main() method we get the default timezone using the TimeZone.getDefault() and convert it to ZoneId by calling the toZoneId() method. In the second example we create the TimeZone object by calling the getTimeZone() and pass the string of timezone id. To convert it to ZoneId we call the toZoneId() method.

package org.kodejava.example.datetime;

import java.time.ZoneId;
import java.util.TimeZone;

public class TimeZoneToZoneId {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        ZoneId zoneId = TimeZone.getDefault().toZoneId();
        System.out.println("zoneId = " + zoneId);

        TimeZone timeZoneUsPacific = TimeZone.getTimeZone("US/Pacific");
        ZoneId zoneIdUsPacific = timeZoneUsPacific.toZoneId();
        System.out.println("zoneIdUsPacific = " + zoneIdUsPacific);
    }
}

This snippet prints the following output:

zoneId = Asia/Shanghai
zoneIdUsPacific = US/Pacific

To convert the other way around you can do it like the following code snippet. Below we convert the ZoneId to TimeZone by using the TimeZone.getTimeZone() method and pass the ZoneId.systemDefault() which return the system default timezone. Or we can create ZoneId using the ZoneId.of() method and specify the timezone id and then pass it to the getTimeZone() method of the TimeZone class.

package org.kodejava.example.datetime;

import java.time.ZoneId;
import java.util.TimeZone;

public class ZoneIdToTimeZone {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        TimeZone timeZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone(ZoneId.systemDefault());
        System.out.println("timeZone = " + timeZone.getDisplayName());

        TimeZone timeZoneUsPacific = TimeZone.getTimeZone(ZoneId.of("US/Pacific"));
        System.out.println("timeZoneUsPacific = " + timeZoneUsPacific.getDisplayName());
    }
}

And here are the output of the code snippet above:

timeZone = China Standard Time
timeZoneUsPacific = Pacific Standard Time

How do I get a list of all TimeZones Ids using Java 8?

To retrieve a list of all available time zones ids we can call the java.time.ZoneId static method getAvailableZoneIds(). This method return a Set of string of all zone ids. The format of the zone id are “{area}/{city}”. You can use this ids of string to create the ZoneId object using the ZoneId.of() static method.

package org.kodejava.example.datetime;

import java.time.ZoneId;
import java.time.format.TextStyle;
import java.util.Locale;
import java.util.Set;

public class GetAllTimeZoneIds {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Set<String> zoneIds = ZoneId.getAvailableZoneIds();
        for (String id : zoneIds) {
            ZoneId zoneId = ZoneId.of(id);
            System.out.println("id          = " + id);
            System.out.println("displayName = " + 
                zoneId.getDisplayName(TextStyle.FULL, Locale.US));
        }
    }
}

Here are some of zone IDs printed out to the console:

id          = Asia/Aden
displayName = Arabian Time
id          = America/Cuiaba
displayName = Amazon Time
id          = Etc/GMT+9
displayName = GMT-9:00
id          = Etc/GMT+8
displayName = GMT-8:00
id          = Africa/Nairobi
displayName = Eastern Africa Time
...
...
...
id          = Europe/Nicosia
displayName = Eastern European Time
id          = Pacific/Guadalcanal
displayName = Solomon Is. Time
id          = Europe/Athens
displayName = Eastern European Time
id          = US/Pacific
displayName = Pacific Time
id          = Europe/Monaco
displayName = Central European Time

How do I get HTTP headers using HttpClient HEAD request?

The HTTP HEAD method is used for reading the headers information of a resource returned when accessing it using the HTTP GET method. Such request can be done before deciding to download a large resource to save bandwidth. The response to a HEAD method should not have a body, in the code below we use the HttpResponse.BodyHandlers.discarding(), which is a response body handler that discards the the response body.

In the code snippet below we start by creating an instance of HttpClient, in this example we use the HttpClient.newBuilder().build() method. After creating the HttpClient we create the HttpRequest object. We set the HTTP method to HEAD by calling the method method() and pass a string “HEAD” as the method name and HttpRequest.BodyPublishers.noBody() a request body publisher which sends no request body.

The next step in the code below is to send the request and get the response headers from the HttpResponse object using the headers() method. The map() method of the HttpHeaders object give us a key-values of the headers returned by the server.

package org.kodejava.example.httpclient;

import java.net.URI;
import java.net.http.HttpClient;
import java.net.http.HttpHeaders;
import java.net.http.HttpRequest;
import java.net.http.HttpResponse;

public class HeadRequestExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        HttpClient client = HttpClient.newBuilder().build();

        HttpRequest request = HttpRequest.newBuilder()
            .uri(URI.create("https://google.com"))
            .method("HEAD", HttpRequest.BodyPublishers.noBody())
            .build();

        HttpResponse<Void> response = client.send(request,
            HttpResponse.BodyHandlers.discarding());

        // Returns an unmodifiable multi map view of this HttpHeaders.
        // The map contains key of string, with list of strings as
        // its value.
        HttpHeaders headers = response.headers();
        headers.map().forEach((key, values) ->
            System.out.printf("%s = %s%n", key, values));
    }
}

Here are the HTTP headers we got and printed out to the console screen:
