6. How to add new conversions
Adding new conversions can be done in two different ways. You can either build a new converter, or add new conversions into existing converters. Adding new conversions is rather different in each converter and you can find very brief instructions in the next sections. After you have added the format, you will also need to add new mime-type and extension pair into fileExt.xml file in the web service directory. It is strongly advised to use the same format description, format name and format mime-type for one document format, in case it is defined in several converters.
This can be done very easily. All you have to do is to add the new style-sheets into you stylesheets directory. Then you need to provide a plugin.xml file specifying some properties of the conversion. For and example of such file, see profiles/default/csv folder in your stylesheets directory. After it is done, you only need to refresh the web client page and new conversion should appear. Note that you can also add new conversions by defining them in the ege-xsl-converter/src/main/resources/META-INF/plugin.xml file. But then you have to recompile the whole application.
This is a bit more difficult. First you need to add the conversion information into Format.java file. After this is done, you need to define the conversion in the TEIconverter.java file. You might also need to look into ConverterConfiguration.java in order to change some conversion settings. When everything is finished, you need to rebuild and redeploy the whole application.
In order to do this, you need to add the document format into one of the files: InputTextFormat.java, InputSpreadsheetFormat.java, InputPresentationFormat.java, OutputTextFormat.java, OutputSpreadsheetFormat.java, OutputPresentationFormat.java. Then you need to change some of the Java files depending on the support of the new format by the JODConverter library.
