MarkLogic Toolkit for Word

down arrow Code & Downloads

The MarkLogic Toolkit for Word® allows you to quickly build content applications with MarkLogic Server that extend the functionality of Microsoft Word and leverage Office Open XML (OOXML), the native document format of Word 2007.

With the Toolkit for Word you can build a new class of applications to

  • Find and reuse granular information across your organization
  • Enrich Word documents for search and analytics
  • Enhance Word documents with custom metadata

...all within the familiar authoring environment of Microsoft Word.

The Toolkit for Word comes with a bootstrap add-in that allows you to deploy web-based content applications into Word. This means you can use familiar web development techniques, such as HTML and JavaScript, to build powerful applications with MarkLogic Server that work in concert with the Word authoring environment. Sample add-in applications included with the Toolkit provide quick-start templates for typical use cases, including granular search and reuse and custom metadata management. The Toolkit simplifies enterprise-wide deployments with a client-server architecture and no-configuration installations for authors. The Toolkit for Word also includes XQuery libraries for building server-based applications to assemble, manipulate, and deliver Office Open XML for Office 2007 and other XML-based workflows.
