OpenOffice.org API Tutorial

A useful feature for many business applications is functionality
allowing the user to generate reports from data in an application.
Spreadsheets are ideal for this purpose. Not only does a spreadsheet
lay data out in a structured, scanable format, but it also gives the
user the opportunity to quickly and efficiently perform calculations
on data. As it happens, the OpenOffice.org API exposes a very wide
range of classes and methods that let you, the developer, integrate
the OpenOffice.org spreadsheet application, called Calc, into your
application. A simple click of a button in an application can start
up OpenOffice.org and transfer the application's data to a
customized spreadsheet.
