To use JODConverter you need:
- A Java runtime environment version 1.4 or higher
- OpenOffice.org v2.0.3 or higher; the latest stable version is usually recommended. (StarOffice 8, NeoOffice being based on OpenOffice.org should also work.)
- Any operating system for which Java and OpenOffice.org are available (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD, etc.)
For use as a web application / web service you will also need:
- A Servlet 2.3 container such as Apache Tomcat v4.1 or higher. (The jodconverter-tomcat package includes Tomcat.)
In any case OpenOffice.org must be running as a service for JODConverter to work.
