Introduction to the API

From Apache OpenOffice Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search objects and methods, such as paragraphs, spreadsheets, and fonts, are accessible to Basic through the application programming interface, or API. Through the API, for example, documents can be created, opened, modified and printed. The API can be used not only by Basic, but also by other programming languages, such as Java and C++. The interface between the API and various programming languages is provided by something called Universal Network Objects (UNO).

This chapter provides a background on the API. Building on this background, the following chapters will show how the API can be used to make do what you want it to do.
