Oracle Outside In Technology

Outside In Technology is a suite of software development kits (SDKs) that provides developers with a comprehensive solution to extract, normalize, scrub, convert and view the contents of 600 unstructured file formats. Each SDK within the suite is optimized to solve a particular problem but they are highly flexible and interoperable. Developers can quickly implement any combination of the Outside In SDKs to provide exactly the right functionality in their application while minimizing integration effort and code footprint. The SDKs offer a wide range of options to give the developer programmatic control of their workflow and output. Thorough documentation and sample applications with source code are included to further accelerate implementation.

Outside In 8.5.1 is now available!
This release includes bug fixes and more options in the Java and .NET APIs. These include redirected I/O for input and output files; a simplified process to export miltiple documents to a single document when exporting to PDF or mutli-page TIFF; and a configurable time-out to set the maximum amount of time allowed for a conversion. The .NET API now provides Strong Name Signed .NET modules and the ability to specify the location of the Outside In modules--thus making it possible to run an application from a different directory than that of Outside In. Web View Export has improved visual continuity of text selection highlight, more options to modify the text style and background of the header area shown for email messages, and new methods in the JavaScript API to enable more customization.
