Document Conversion using Sockets

Postby rompetoto » Thu Jul 07, 2011 12:15 am

Ok...so what a headache the OO SDK is...

Basically I am trying to convert documents using the headless version of OpenOffice.org 3 and TCP sockets.

The python code from here http://www.artofsolving.com/opensource/pyodconverter works amazing! If only I could convert this to C#...

The problem I am facing seems to be happen when I am bootstrapping the Local Context.
The uno.util.Bootstrap.bootstrap() function is NOT what I want at all, becuase this just creates another soffice.exe process.

I want to use an already created soffice process to do the conversion work.

I have tried this code to bootstrap the system, but it always returns null.
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
XComponentContext xLocalContext = uno.util.Bootstrap.defaultBootstrap_InitialComponentContext();


Does anyone have any suggestions, if you have any questions about what I am trying to accomplish, please just ask.

Thanks, Richard
