The Document Reader SDK consists of two frameworks: API and Core.

The API framework provides the external interface for controlling the process and getting the result. It depends on the Common framework that is an interface for working with the camera and other modules that are used in other Regula SDKs.

The Core framework provides the recognition functionality where all the processing happens. This is the internal framework, it is used by the API framework only and is not accessible for developers. However, it should be referenced in the project.

The database contains the documents' data. It's mandatory to have it if you use the Core type that supports document type recognition.
