Do you have to deal with a frequent exchange of the digital documents? Do your documents contain classified and sensitive information that needs to be protected? If they do, how do you process such documents to hide or remove some specific information before sending them outside your company? Well, these questions will definitely pop out the solution that you are currently using for protecting the sensitive content in your document.

What if I tell you that you can automate the process of protecting the classified content in your documents? Wouldn’t it be great when you will be able to do it for a bunch of documents using a single click?

Yes, you can now redact, hide or remove sensitive content & metadata from word processing documents, worksheets, presentations, PDF and raster image files in your Java applications using GroupDocs.Redaction for Java.‎ The API provides a single ‎format-independent interface supporting various redaction types such as text redaction, metadata ‎redaction, annotation redaction, and tabular document redaction.

Imagine a scenario where you have some Word documents created in MS Word and you want to display them in your web application. So how would you view the content of the file? A suitable and easy solution is if you could get the HTML form of the Word document then it can be viewed in the web browser within your application. Isn’t it great when you could view the documents without having installed some Office viewer?

Since version 19.5, the assembled Word Processing documents, Spreadsheets, Presentations, and Email files could be saved as HTML with external resources. This means that the generated reports can now be saved as HTML files along with the resources such as images and, as I have mentioned before, you would be able to embed and view the content of the generated reports within your web application.

Indexing is a term quite synonymous with search engines now days, however, by definition, it refers to organizing data based on a specific schema. To put it another way, it’s the process of making data and information more presentable as well as conveniently accessible.

Arrangement of data in an index saves you time and effort during information search or retrieval. For perspective, consider a book on space science containing hundreds of pages. If it does not include an index, you would have to search through the whole book every time you wish to view desired information. It would be a completely different scenario with this book having an index, you can open the exact page which holds the information you are looking for.

GroupDocs.Search for Java is a unique indexing API providing a refined feature set and flexible structure. It lets Java app developers create and manage multiple indices and use various search queries such as simple, boolean, regular expression (regex) or fuzzy search.

You can use blended characters with this Java API which help you in utilizing characters like a hyphen as valid letters and separators when indexing. Wildcard search option is another very useful feature of this API. There are two forms of wildcards available, single arbitrary character or a range of wildcard arbitrary characters.

An important aspect of document automation is the ability to work with dynamic content. On many occasions, we might need to dynamically consume documents into our applications. When it comes to utilizing this functionality on Java platform, one of the most well-known options is GroupDocs.Assembly for Java API. It supports dynamically assembling external documents within your Java apps for Microsoft Office and Email file formats.

You can incorporate the contents of external documents into your reports dynamically with the help of the doc tags which are placeholders inside a template for a document to be absorbed at run-time. It works by declaring an expression inside a doc tag, which helps load a document to be added dynamically. The expression declared within the doc tag is evaluated and the output is then used to load the document with its content replacing the dog tag. Try now – http://bit.ly/2HemeNv
