Introduction to the Apache OpenOffice API
Apache OpenOffice objects and methods, such as paragraphs, spreadsheets, and fonts, are accessible to Apache OpenOffice Basic through the Apache OpenOffice 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 Apache OpenOffice 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 Apache OpenOffice do what you want it to do.
