Hi, I am a newbie to the OOo world. I am trying to get a 'Word to HTML' converter web service running to enable non M$ users access Word docs. I am looking into the possibility of using OOo (in some form) to achieve this since from what I can see it's filters are brill.

A simple way of achieving this would be to install Word on the server and use the COM interface to export as HTML. However ideally I want to make a non-Win32 version. (I am writing initially a Win32 version as I am most familiar with the technology Shocked)

My questions are:
[I assume this is possible] Can I build an service to interface the API and simple calling a load/save (or Import/Export)?

What does the server machine need to have installed to get this working? I don't know if I'll be permitted to install the full OOo suite. Can I just copy several DLLs etc?

Alternatively:
Would it be easier to grab the source code and simply add it to my project? I can imagine that a lot of code hacking would be required. (From my understanding of the open license this is fine.)

I really appreciate any help you can give me.
Kind regards,
fbKevy

You have to install all the OOo suite.

It is probably possible but very hard to do.

Shocked Yes looking at the code it doesn't seem too easy alright. Is their an overview document somewhere of how the binfilter is structured?

It is a real shame I couldn't just use a lib or dll to do what I want...

Thanks,

The only document in my knowledge related to code source is here :
Source code directories
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Source_code_directories
but as you can see : minimal explanations.
