{    
	License license = new License();
	license.setLicense("D:\\GroupDocs.Metadata.lic");
	 
	try (VCardFormat format = new VCardFormat("D:\\input.vcf"))

			printArray(vCard.getCommunicationRecordset().getTelephones());
		}
	}
}

private static void printArray(String[] values)
{
	if (values != null)
	{
		for (String value : values)
		{
			System.out.println(value);
		}
	}
}

Read vCard properties along with descriptive parameters

Java

try (VCardFormat format = new VCardFormat("D:\\input.vcf"))
{
	for (VCardMetadata vCard : format.getVCardInfo())
	{
		if (vCard.getIdentificationRecordset().getPhotoUriRecords() != null)
		{
			// Iterate all photos represented by URIs
			for (VCardTextRecordMetadata photoUriRecord : vCard.getIdentificationRecordset().getPhotoUriRecords())
			{
				// Print the property value
				System.out.println(photoUriRecord.getValue());

				// Print some additional parameters of the property
				System.out.println(photoUriRecord.getContentType());
				System.out.println(photoUriRecord.getMediaTypeParameter());
				if (photoUriRecord.getTypeParameters() != null)
				{
					for (String parameter : photoUriRecord.getTypeParameters())
					{
						System.out.println(parameter);
					}
				}
				System.out.println(photoUriRecord.getPrefParameter());
			}
		}
	}
} 

Filter vCard properties

Java

	{
		for (VCardMetadata vCard : format.getVCardInfo())
		{
			// Print most preferred work phone numbers and work emails
			VCardMetadata filtered = vCard.filterWorkTags().filterPreferred();
			printArray(filtered.getCommunicationRecordset().getTelephones());
			printArray(filtered.getCommunicationRecordset().getEmails());
		}
	}
}

private static void printArray(String[] values)
{
	if (values != null)
	{
		for (String value : values)
		{
			System.out.println(value);
		}
	}
}
