Docmosis-Java Config Files

This example shows how to configure Docmosis using properties and config files.

The ZIP contains:

  • DocmosisConfigFiles.java
  • docmosis.properties
  • converterPoolConfig.xml
  • WelcomeTemplate.doc
  • readme.txt (instructions on setup)

The licence key, OpenOffice/LibreOffice install location and other settings will be read from the docmosis.properties file.

The converterPoolConfig.xml file explains how to set up one embedded converter.

The extras directory contains more detailed examples of the docmosis.properties and converterPoolConfig.xml files.
