Docx4j Helper AddIn for Microsoft Word
Download/install this to generate docx4j Java code from within Word, see the XML, plus more.
We'd like to encourage you to use the docx4j source code in your IDE, so we put this option near the top.
- Fork https://github.com/plutext/docx4j [optional but recommended]
- git clone your fork, or git clone https://github.com/plutext/docx4j
- Import the Maven pom in your IDE. In Eclipse, that's File > Import > Maven > Existing Maven Projects.
docx4j is in Maven Central: Select one and only one of:
You'll want docx4j-community-8.0.0.zip
For convenience, that zip file includes the docx4j-JAXB-Internal jar. So if you are using Java 8, that is generally all you need.
If you want to use MOXy or the JAXB Reference Impl, you'll also need either:
and be sure to exclude the docx4j-JAXB-Internal jar!
The latest nightly build can always be found in the /docx4j downloads directory.
Sample code is not in Maven Central.
Zip files are available:
- docx4j: docx4j-samples-docx4j-8.0.0.zip
- pptx4j: docx4j-samples-pptx4j-8.0.0.zip
- xlsx4j: docx4j-samples-xls4j-8.0.0.zip
You can also find these in the respective sub-directories at https://github.com/plutext/docx4j
Sample properties file may be found at docx4j-samples-resources/src/main/resources/docx4j.properties
To see docx4j logs, you'll need a concrete logging implementation. Config files for log4j2 and logback may be found in the sample resources
For convenience, the sample zips include the deps necessary for those 2 logging implementations.
