PDF Conversion Configuration

The parameters of this group allow configuring the conversion tools from PDF to HTML so that the content of those resources can be extracted by ITPilot:

  • PDF To HTML converter: default conversion tool type used to transform the PDF resource into HTML
    • Acrobat HTML: uses the HTML conversion tool from the Adobe Acrobat Professional software (it is required that this product be installed).
    • Acrobat Text: uses the plain text conversion tool from the Adobe Acrobat Professional software, from which ITPilot generates an HTML file (it is required that this product is installed).
    • PDFBox 0.7.3 and PDFBox 1.X: use the PDFBox library (Apache PDFBox - A Java PDF Library) - bundled with the Denodo Platform - to generate the HTML page. Version 1.X of PDFBox (currently PDFBox 1.6) is available since ITPilot 4.7; version 0.7.3 was included in previous releases of ITPilot and is still available.
  • Conversion Server port: port where the PDF Conversion Server will be listening from.

Conversion Configuration

The parameters of this group allow setting conversion options that apply to all converters:
