Support for virtual documents (document as a folder with files to show as single doc)


#1

Is there a way to use viewer for virtual documents (when a document is presented not by a single file but rather a set of files) ?


I am evaluating GroupDocs Viewer as a drop-in replacement in the existing application which mostly uses TIFF but due to existing viewer limitations all multipage TIFFs has to be split into individual pages, so single document from the user perspective is actually a bunch of single page TIFFs on the server and existing viewer knows that document is presented by not a file but by the folder.

Thanks,
Pavel

Hello Pavel,

Thank you for your interest in GroupDocs. Sorry but our Viewer library doesn't supported several streams documents and view them one by one, as one document. But you can use the GroupDocs.Conversion for Java library to achieve the goal. You can extend GroupDocs.Viewer by adding custom functional which will use GroupDocs.Conversion library to convert and combine several documents to one document in to the CustomInputDataHandler of the Viewer

Also to test full functionality our GroupDocs.Viewer for Java you can get the temp license if you will follow these steps:
1) Register an account at GroupDocs
2) Click the buy link from our main website
3) Add the products they are interested in getting the evaluation license for to their shopping cart
4) Go to View cart and on the bottom of the checkout area there is a button get

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