For the past few months I have been deeply engaged in a Captiva InputAccel project. The requirements for this project were fairly simple and generic: scan documents (capture), enhance (de-skew and read bar code), extract (OCR and index), and export (to Documentum and SQL Server database). The difficulty I encountered was my inexperience with InputAccel v6.5. I discovered that there were no publically available resources on the Internet that discussed the development and implementation of a capture process using InputAccel. So, after the successful implementation and delivery of my project, I documented everything I learned in a short tutorial to aid the uninitiated in the future development of InputAccel projects. You can find it here, or on the Research page of my personal blog.
The tutorial covers the following three broad topics:
- Creating a capture process using the CaptureFlow Designer tool.
- Setting up the InputAccel modules used in the capture process (ScanPlus, IndexPlus, Image Enhancement, OCR, ODBC Export and Documentum Export) to meet specific functional requirements.
- Testing and troubleshooting the process.
Enjoy, and hopefully it will be useful to developers embarking on Captiva projects in the future.
