ServPDF-OO for OpenOffice is a web based PDF Converter Server (PDF-Server) for OpenOffice distributed as a small zip file (only 206 KByte). The installation process is very easy: Simply extract the archive into the OpenOffice directory like c:\Programs\OpenOffice2.0\ and run 2 batch files.
ServPDF-OO was developed as a server application with SPYCE (PYthon Server Pages) and uses the PyUNO API of OpenOfffice. Therefore the PyUNO API should be installed in OpenOffice.
Start the PDF Server:
If you have downloaded and extracted the archive into the OpenOffice directory, you can start OpenOffice with the included OOService.bat. After that you have to start the webserver with Spyce_Webserver.bat. This two files can be found in the ServPDF-OO directory which was extracted into the OpenOffice directory.
If the PDF-Server is running, you can point your Webbrowser to the local adress http://localhost:8000/index.spy and do some conversions. Other users can naw convert documents too by pointing their browser to the adress your mashine, where ServPDF-OO runs.
ServPDF-OO is compatible with OpenOffice 1.x andOpenOffice 2.x.
Supported are all documents, which OpenOffice can read. For example:
- Microsoft Word
- Microsoft Excel
- Microsoft Powerpoint
- OpenOffice documents
- and more…
btw, with a little modification, you can get a ServSwf-OO,SWF-Server for OpenOffice. and I have suggested a RAC buyer use this application.
