Load document from local disk

GroupDocs.Parser provides the functionality to extract data from documents on the local disk.

The following example shows how to load the document from the local disk:

// Set the filePath
String filePath = Constants.SamplePdf;
// Create an instance of Parser class with the filePath
try (Parser parser = new Parser(filePath)) {
    // Extract a text into the reader
    try (TextReader reader = parser.getText()) {
        // Print a text from the document
        // If text extraction isn't supported, a reader is null
        System.out.println(reader == null ? "Text extraction isn't supported" : reader.readToEnd());
