For those of you who are not familiar with the library yet, it's basically a web-based document viewer that comes with a comprehensive set of annotation tools. The library allows end users to comment on and mark up almost 50 types of documents from within your Java app. For more details on the library, please see this page. If you or your client have a private collaboration network and want to use a shared folder for storing the annotated documents, this article is for you.
