Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-746) Integrate MSWord content in Forrest
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2005 10:14:30 GMT

Ross Gardler commented on FOR-746:

I have no idea, I just saw this on the Cocoon list and stuck it in here as a memory jogger.

It is worth noting that i do have a plugin for Forrest that uses OOo to convert MSOffice files
and then uses our OOo plugin to convert to XDoc. I can't make this available via Apache hardware
as the license for some required jars from OOo is not compatible. However, if anyone has the
time to start a plugins project on sourceforge and make this one available there under a suitable
license I would be more than happy to make the code available.

I've been meaning to do it for a long time, but I'm afraid it is pretty low priroty. Hopefully
this issue will help root out someone willing to be do this.

to convert to OOo and then use the OOo plugin.
