var AppSID = 'XXX'; //sepcify App SID
var AppKey = 'XXX'; //sepcify App Key
var config = {'appSid':AppSID,'apiKey':AppKey};
var data_path = '../data/';

try {
//Instantiate Aspose.Storage API SDK
var storageApi = new StorageApi(config);

//Instantiate Aspose.OCR API SDK
var ocrApi = new OcrApi(config);

//set input file name
var name =  "Sampleocr.bmp";
var storage = null;
var folder = null;

//upload file to aspose cloud storage
storageApi.PutCreate(name, null, null, data_path + name , function(responseMessage) {
	assert.equal(responseMessage.status, 'OK');
	//invoke Aspose.OCR Cloud SDK API to extract text and partsinfo from an image
	ocrApi.GetRecognizeDocument(name, null, null, null, null, null, null, storage, folder, function(responseMessage) {
			assert.equal(responseMessage.status, 'OK');
