To ensure multithreaded filter processes are thread-safe, you must create a unique Filter context for every thread by instantiating a
Filter object. In addition, threads must not share context objects, and the same context object must be used for all API calls in the same thread. Creating a context object for every thread does not affect performance because the context object uses minimal resources.
For example, your Java code should have the following logic in a thread:
m_objFilter = new Filter(); m_objFilter.setFilterDirectory(m_filterDirectory); m_objFilter.setInputSource(infile); m_objFilter.getDocFormatInfo(); if (objFilter.canFilter() == true) m_objFilter.filterTo(outfile); m_objFilter.shutdownFilter();
