In order to start the application in command-line mode simply append two parameters (source URL and output file name) to the command we used above.

D:\tools>java -jar pd4ml.jar http://localhost:80/ test.pdf
D:\tools>java -jar pd4ml.jar file:d:/test.html test.pdf

Note: there is no possibility to pass HTML-to-PDF convert parameters in the command line. The application takes parameters from (if exists) created by the application automatically.
