I tried your suggestion and the command ran with no errors. Unfortunately the resulting text file had unrecognizable characters in it.

I did get something to do the job for the time being. It is not as eloquent as you using 1 command but it got the job done for now. Here is my CL program.

PGM PARM(&WORDFILE &TEXTFILE)

/* Declare Variables */

DCL VAR(&TEXTFILE) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(200)
DCL VAR(&WORDFILE) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(200)

/* Convert Word Document to a Spool File */

JAVA CLASS('/java/Tika/tika-app-1.14.jar') PARM('-t' +
&WORDFILE) OUTPUT(*PRINT)

/* Convert Spool File to a Text File */

SPLCONVERT FILE(QPRINT) TOOBJ(&TEXTFILE) JOB(GORD/QPRTJOB) +
TRANSFORM(*TXT) DLTSPLF(*YES) +
OBJATR((*DISKSTGOPT *MINIMIZE))
ENDPGM

As you can see, I run the java command and have my output go to a spool file. Then I use the SPLCONVERT command from the SPLAMATIC product from Gumbo Software to convert the spool file to text. We have used this product for many years. That worked for me for now. Though it would be nice to do it with just calling the java program.

Thanks for all your help. We really appreciate it.

it looks like the Java Class is directing the output to stdout...
you could then try

JAVA CLASS('/java/Tika/tika-app-1.14.jar') PARM('-t' '"/java/Tika/Goralta Invoice.doc" ') PROP((os400.stdout "file:/java/Tika/Goralta Invoice.txt"))
