Configuring LibreOffice

You can transform a document from one format to another using the LibreOffice subsystem. This feature requires you to install LibreOffice.
OOoJODconverter
The JODConverter integration, which is a library that improves the stability and performance of LibreOffice in Alfresco. The OOoJODConverter runs on the same machine as the Alfresco server and it supports:
  • a pool of separate LibreOffice processes
  • automatic restart of crashed LibreOffice processes
  • automatic termination of slow LibreOffice operations
  • automatic restart of any LibreOffice process after a number of operations (this is a workaround for LibreOffice memory leaks)
OOoDirect
If you are using OpenOffice in place of LibreOffice, use the OOoDirect subsystem for OpenOffice integration. To enable or disable this subsystem, use the following property:
ooo.enabled=false
Note: If you install Alfresco manually, by default, the OOoDirect subsystem is enabled, and the OOoJodconverter subsystem is disabled. Although it is possible to run both subsystems, Alfresco recommends that you enable only one at a time. To take advantage of the stability and performance benefits of the OOoJodconverter subsystem, ensure that you disable OOoDirect and enable OOoJodConverter using the following properties in the alfresco-global.properties file:
ooo.enabled=false
jodconverter.enabled=true
