//load PostScript document
PSDocument document = new PSDocument();
document.load(new File("input.ps"));

//create OutputStream
fos = new FileOutputStream(new File("rendition.pdf"));

//create converter
PDFConverter converter = new PDFConverter();

//set options
converter.setPDFSettings(PDFConverter.OPTION_PDFSETTINGS_PREPRESS);

//convert
converter.convert(document, fos);
