Windward

Android and the Java Engine

engine-wiki-logo.pngOverview

We support embedding the Java Engine into an Android application. There are a few things to note when doing do.

Usage

To use Windward on an Android (Java engine) you need to do the following:

  1. Do not use the files (filenames generally include version numbers) bcmail.jar, bcprov.jar, bctsp.jar, iText.jar, or iTextAsian.jar.
  2. Do not use WindwardReports.jar
  3. Add droidText.jar to your classpath (or library folder).
  4. Add WindwardAndroid.jar to your classpath (or library folder).

Limitations

The Android version does not support the following features:

  1. Shapes and SmartArt are only supported for DOCX -> DOCX and XLSX -> XLSX. They are ignored for all other output.
  2. Chart borders are only supported for DOCX -> DOCX and XLSX -> XLSX. They are ignored for all other output. The chart is still created but the border will not be rendered.
