docx4j 8.2.2 and 8.2.3 are now in Maven Central.
8.2.2 notable changes:
- FieldUpdater support for docvars (docprops are already supported)
- Update OSGI stuff for current release. Confirmed working in karaf 4.2.6 with docx4j-JAXB-Internal on Java 8.
8.2.3 facilitates using Microsoft's cloud for docx to PDF conversion. This uses our new https://github.com/plutext/java-docx-to ... soft-Graph via a supporting module in https://github.com/plutext/docx4j/tree/ ... soft-graph
For sample code, see https://github.com/plutext/docx4j/tree/ ... ph_convert
You would need to first set some stuff up on Microsoft's cloud. For how to do that, see the first GitHub link above.
To use 8.2.3 via Maven (you may as well skip 8.2.2), just add one and only one of docx4j-JAXB-Internal, docx4j-JAXB-MOXy,
or docx4j-JAXB-ReferenceImpl to your pom. https://search.maven.org/search?q=g:org.docx4j
Otherwise, see https://www.docx4java.org/downloads.html
Minimum supported Java version is 8.0
