I have some questions regarding Open Office
Is Developer version available from the open office Website?
Does the developer version have the classes that can be extended or implemented in a java project?
Can open office be used to connect to RDBMS as a standalone or will I need to use some other interface /Layer.
I guess I am asking if for example like MS Excel/ Word which can directlyconnect to an RDBMS using ODBC. Can I do the same using JDBC or JDO from an open office source?
Any suggestion or comments welcome
Thanks
Jawahar

Hi,
Yes, the source code is on www.openoffice.org, and it's on the CD included in my OpenOffice.org Resource Kit, as well.
I'm pretty sure you can extend OOo into a Java project. You can connect directly to a whole bunch of data sources already in OOo without any modification, though only to one table at a time so you might want to do some tweaking somewhere. I mean, one document can connect to one table.
You can use ODBC and JDBC currently with OOo.
Sounds like you've got quite the project planned!
