We are planning to deploy our app(JEE) in OpenShift. Can you please let me know how the Docmosis deployment works in cloud with respect to the dependency on Open Office? Do we need to install the same in Openshift env? Any reference for this implementation? Also, would it be possible to use Docmosis without the dependency of Open Office just for generating word doc or is it mandatory to have an Open Office/Libre Office installment?

Open Office Dependency

Hi Jack.

If you are using one of the Docmosis downloaded products then yes, you need to install LibreOffice or OpenOffice at this time. The document production even for doc to doc formats relies on features provided by these office products. You can separate the dependency away from your main application (to other machines for example) but you still need it installed somewhere.

If you use the Docmosis Cloud then you don't need to install anything, just call the REST api.

We don't know the OpenShift platform to say whether it allows you to install OpenOffice or LibreOffice. If not you would need to either use the Docmosis cloud service or have other hosts running the Docmosis "Converters" which your Open Shift deployment would call to.
