Configuring LibreOffice

You can transform a document from one format to another using the OOoJodconverter subsystem. This feature requires you to install LibreOffice.
The Jodconverter integration is a library that improves the stability and performance of LibreOffice in Alfresco Community Edition. The Jodconverter runs on the same machine as the Alfresco Community Edition 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)

It is also possible to use OpenOffice instead of LibreOffice.
