SKYTIZENS JodConverter within Alfresco Community

The JodConverter integration, which is a library that improves the stability and performance of (OOo) within Alfresco. The OOoJodConverter runs on the same machine as the Alfresco server. The JodConverter supports:

  • a pool of separate OpenOffice processes
  • automatic restart of crashed OpenOffice processes
  • automatic termination of slow OpenOffice operations
  • automatic restart of any OpenOffice process after a number of operations (this is a workaround for OpenOffice memory leaks)

> version 1.1

      • unlimited pool of separate OpenOffice processes (your hardware is limitation)
      • fixed bug: failed to start and connect (now jodconverter doing this automatically)

      Re: SKYTIZENS JodConverter within Alfresco Community

      Dear Alfresco,

      I'm a bit confused whether JOD converter is supposed to work on the Community version or not....

      - From this page, it seems it was supported in Alfresco Community 4.2.x

      - From this thread, it seems it was never supported -

      - The JOD library is open source on GitHub - Alfresco/alfresco-jodconverter: JODConverter automates document conversions using LibreOffi... 

      - The Alfresco Community 5.2.0 classpath (WEB-INF/lib) includes jodconverter-2.1.0-alfresco-patched.jar

      I'd really like to use it, instead of randomly killing the soffice process, as proposed as alternative in the thread above.

      Thanks in advance!

      The Alfresco opensource version of JOD Converter works with Alfresco 6.0, by default, but I know that Peter Löfgren‌ has back ported it to 5.2.

      You can follow the changes (big changes) at the links below:
