What's New in this Release?

 Aspose team is pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Tasks for Java 9.4.0. The API can now read VBA project information such as references information, modules information and module attributes information. Since the Java API is auto-ported from its equivalent .NET version, the internal functionality of the API fixes a number of bugs that further improve the overall stability of the API. This month’s release provides the capability to read VBA project information from a Microsoft Project document. The API’s VbaProject class provides the interface for reading this information such as Name, Description, complication arguments and context Id. In order to read the references information from the document’s VBA project, the getReferences() method exposed by the VbaProject class can be used. It returns a collection of all the references contained in the VBA project that can be further traversed for information such as Name and Library identifiers. Module information from a VBA project of a document can be retrieved using the getModules() method of the VbaProject class. It returns a collection of modules contained in the VBA project. Each module can then be retrieved as an instance of IVbaModule that can be used to retrieve information such as module name and source code. Each module, represented by IVbaModule, gets you access to its attributes information such as Key and values. The getAttributes() method of IVbaModule class can be used to retrieve this information for the selected module. This month’s release also fixes a number of bugs that were reported by our valued customers with the last version of the API. This further aids to the stability of the API in terms of sustainable functionality. Below is the complete list of bug fixes and enhanced features included in this release.
