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