Adding documents to a repository can became a really tedious task, above all when we have to include a lot of documents, like could be an entire corporative web company, legacy document archives, etc.
One easy way to perform this tasks is to take advantage of the massive loading option incorporated into jLibrary. The only thing you have to do is right-clicking on the directory or repository which will hold the documents, and choose the menu option Add files and directories:
When you have chosen all the documents an directories to be loaded, press the Accept button, and jLibrary will start to add and index all those documents in the repository. This operation can take several minutes, depending of the size and type of the documents. In this process, jLibrary will extract the content of all those files, and will try to get the appropiate metadata, keywords, etc.
That metadata extraction isn't always perfect. When you are working with sensible data, it will be advisable to check that metadata for ensuring of their validity. As well, jLibrary will try to assign automatically resources to all those documents, but this resource assignement can change because we're working to improve it. At this time, jLibrary only assigns resources automatically to HTML files.
If you take another look to the first screenshot, you will see another menu option very similar to the one we had chosen: Add resources... This option allows to add files as resources instead as documents. After the addition, those resources will can be referenced by your documents.
Finally, there are also some ways to add directories even easier. You can directly drag and drop files and directories from your operating system browser over jLibrary repository. jLibrary will store and index automatically all those documents. Also, you can even copy documents from your operating system browser and paste them over a jLibrary repository. Isn't it fun?
Congratulations ! You have performed your first massive document upload :-)
