HOW TO Configure Import Server to Import Using OIT (Doc ID 1143785.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 28, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Capture 10g - Version to [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The WebCenter Capture (formerly Oracle Document Capture) Import Server makes use of the "Oracle Document Capture" printer driver to convert files to TIF or JPEG format.  Since the printer driver requires a printing application to open these files (e.g. Adobe Reader for .PDF files, or Microsoft Word for .DOC files), there could potentially be problems with the printing application that would cause the import of these documents to fail.

To bypass this problem Import Server has allowed for the use of Oracle's Outside In Technology (OIT) to perform the conversion.  This article explains how registry settings can be used to enable the enhanced Import Server settings to:

  1. Purge the Printer Queue before processing a document.  This is only useful when not configured to import using OIT.
  2. Use OIT to validate the file being imported prior to attempting the conversion.  This is used to ensure the file can be opened before attempting to send it to the printer queue.
  3. Use OIT to convert files to TIF format.
  4. Specify a list of file extension exceptions that still get processed by the Oracle Document Capture printer driver.
*** Using OIT to convert documents could result in image files that are not 100% representative of the original documents.  Common image fidelity issues can include differing document margin sizes on the image than original document as well as some PDF Form documents not importing some of the form data.  Documents commonly converted by Import Server should be converted and examined to ensure they are of acceptable quality before deciding to use OIT with Import Server in your production environment.
