Disable FileSystem Cache


Hi, we recently purchased GroupDocs Total for Java to use as a Viewer in our WebSphere J2EE Application.

During our evaluation, we noticed that several files are created on our local file system. When deploying to our server environment, this cannot happen.

Our Document Management System will provide an InputStream that we’ll then pass onto GroupDocs Viewer.

Can you provide some guidance on the best way to proceed in connecting GroupDocs to our Document Management System so that no files are written to the file system when we invoke the GroupDocs Viewer?

Hello Mike,

Thank you for your inquiry.

To use our library without any cached files you should set next parameters:


Unfortunately, our library can't work without any cache files in a HTML mode , so you should use only an Image mode.

Regarding using your document management system. You should create your CustomInputDataHandler connector to use it. Please investigate this documentation and also you can check our demo examples , to best understand how this connector will work.

If you will have more questions please feel free to contact us.
