Description

This is the Open-Xchange implementation of the Document Converter API. While the API is open, the implementation is not licensed under GPL. It maintains the running instances of readerengines, which are headless OpenOffice instances. This behavior can be configured through documenterconverter.properties configuration file. The Document Converter is only available via a valid Open-Xchange license key.

See Readerengine installation instructions for details on the setup of the underlying readerengine.
