OpenOffice convert doc to pdf with JAVA

I know its have multiple question about it. But I've already read tons of it and it still doesnt work.
I have installed OpenOffice to my comp :

I have also tried this solution, doesnt work :
connection failed while connecting to OpenOffice .org

If I want to run my code i get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.net.ConnectException: connection failed: socket,host=localhost,port=8100,tcpNoDelay=1: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect
at com.artofsolving.jodconverter.openoffice.connection.AbstractOpenOfficeConnection.connect(AbstractOpenOfficeConnection.java:79)
at TestCon.main(TestCon.java:24


How can I mange to Connect to my openoffice program.
PS: I want to use it on windows 7 64x

I use this simple code

import java.io.File;
import java.net.ConnectException;

import com.artofsolving.jodconverter.DocumentConverter;
import com.artofsolving.jodconverter.openoffice.connection.OpenOfficeConnection;
import com.artofsolving.jodconverter.openoffice.connection.SocketOpenOfficeConnection;
import com.artofsolving.jodconverter.openoffice.converter.OpenOfficeDocumentConverter;

public class TestCon {

* @param args
* @throws ConnectException
public static void main(String[] args) throws ConnectException {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
File inputFile = new File("Resume.doc");
File outputFile = new File("document.pdf");

// connect to an OpenOffice.org instance running on port 8100
OpenOfficeConnection connection = new SocketOpenOfficeConnection(8100);

// convert
DocumentConverter converter = new OpenOfficeDocumentConverter(connection);
converter.convert(inputFile, outputFile);

// close the connection


You have to start the openoffice service:

 soffice -headless -accept="socket,host=,port=8100;urp;" -nofirststartwizard

Then you can connect to this service and convert you document.
