I try to open a file, update its properties (if necessary), find styles used, find my placeholders, replace them by writing some stuff in it (text, table, figure, captions), update TOCs, save the document and close it. Basically, what one does with a Word document
The documentation (getting started) mentions two jars that must be included if we intend to process images - and I did include them but couldn't even come to processing images. This is already a lot of dependencies for a library.
The first exception I've got was a class not found; I searched the web and found it must be jaxb-xmldsig-core-1.0.0.jar. Shouldn't this be in java 6/7 (I'm using 7u9)?
The second exception I get now is missing xalan and that's where I said I'd better ask. If I'm to spend a week to figure out I'll end up with all the 25 jars required, then I'd better stay with the good old slow COM API and jacob bridge...
Thanks for your support.
ps: From the tiny bit of output I get before the exception, it seems to me that the logging at INFO level is very chatty in docx4j; giving me what I'd rather read at DEBUG/TRACE level; I'd prefer the hide those from my user.
