Hey all,
I have a requirement to save the data of a MS word document (with formatting like tables, bold characters, headers etc) to oracle database and then read it back. Is this possible? If you guys have any idea regarding this then please let me know .

Thanks,
Haris

Hello Haris,

depending upon your requirements, you could :

1/ Store the entire MS Word document (binary content) in an Oracle database as a BLOB type.

2/ Use Apache POI to parse, process and create MS Word documents. See "http://poi.apache.org/hwpf/index.html"


Regards,

Tim

Perhaps you could use Database store in Liferay, using this

dl.store.impl=com.liferay.portlet.documentlibrary.store.DBStore

in portal-ext.properties in 6.1 GA

Just use database store and use Document and Media portlet to save MS document files. Liferay will automatically save MS document files to Oracle database.

Check the following page.
https://www.liferay.com/documentation/liferay-portal/6.1/user-guide/-/ai/document-library-portlet

You'll need to create a portal-ext.properties file. Read up about it in "Customizing Configuration" in following page:
http://www.packtpub.com/article/setting-up-and-configuring-a-liferay-portal

MS Office and PDF files saved to Document and Media portlet will be indexed by default. You'll be able to use "Search" in Document and Media portlet to search for the content.
