This chapter describes the OOoBean component, a generic Java Bean wrapper for OpenOffice.org components. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the Java Beans technology. Additional information about Java Beans can be found at http://java.sun.com/beans.

With the OOoBean, a developer can easily write Java applications, harnessing the power of OpenOffice.org. It encapsulates a connection to a locally running OpenOffice.org process, and hides the complexity of establishing and maintaining that connection from the developer.

It also allows embedding of OpenOffice.org documents within the Java environment. It provides a Java AWT window into which the backend OpenOffice.org process draws its visual representation. This window can then be plugged into the UI hierarchy of the hosting Java application. The embedded document is controlled from the Java environment, since the OOoBean allows developers to access the complete OpenOffice.org API from their Java environment giving them full control over the embedded document, its appearance and behavior.
