Welcome to the OpenOffice.org wiki

This wiki is for all projects associated with OpenOffice.org (OOo). It has a good focus on resources for developers. Also other projects work more and more on the wiki. (Most...) are listed here. Click a link to go directly to the page you want.

Join in contributing to the OpenOffice.org Wiki. Please use your OOo login name for the wiki account. Some functionality is available only if you are logged in to avoid SPAM. Additionally your email address has to be validated. We might be able to avoid the separate user administration later and log you in with the OpenOffice.org site credentials.

To get started editing the wiki see Help:Editing.

Getting started with OOo development

Get Started from Scratch
you most likely need to:

  1. Get it
  2. Build it
  3. Install it
  4. Run it

Click for instructions on
each step!

Building and hacking on OpenOffice.org (OOo) entails climbing a fairly lengthy and steep incline. Hopefully, this wiki will make the learning curve less steep and less abrupt, and will give you a walking stick to help you out.

Much of our documentation assumes that you'll be using a reasonably current Linux system, as this is the easiest environment to start. On Linux, all prerequisites are available as Free software. There is also some information on developing on Windows.

Education Project aims to welcome Students or Teachers who are interested to contribute for code, or whatever concerning Educational system ( see e.g. Education Project Effort )

For help setting up your editor or environment to search/edit/compile OOo easily, please refer to the developer tools area.

Note that you can build either the plain 'up-stream' OOo or use an ooo-build release which adds some patches & fixes. However, the ooo-build process is destined to being gradually phased out as the various up-stream issues it solves go away.

Remember that learning UNO components development is not an easy task. To help you there is an Eclipse plugin and tutorial. You can install the Eclipse plugin by using the following update site: http://cedric.bosdonnat.free.fr/ooeclipseintegration. The tutorial on how to create a UNO component in Java is available in the api project docs & files sections. The document will even be wikified on this page: Java Tutorial using Eclipse

There exists also an OpenOffice.org API plugin for NetBeans that helps a lot to get started with the API and with developing with and for OpenOffice.org. The plugin provides several wizards that simplify the first steps and help to create full working code skeletons for extensions. Try it out and have fun when you want to develop a Java extension for OpenOffice.org. Feedback is always welcome, help us to improve the plugin and send us new ideas what we can do better!
