In the Developer's Guide read Desktop Environment which is under section section 6.1.1.

See the paragraph that says.....
Developer's Guide wrote:
Like all other services, the com.sun.star.frame.Desktop service can be exchanged by another implementation that extends the functionality of OpenOffice.org. By exchanging the desktop service it is possible to use different kinds of windows or to make OpenOffice.org use MDI instead of SDI. This is not an easy thing to do, but it is possible without changing any code elsewhere in OpenOffice.org.


I read this to mean that it is possible (but non trivial) to write a new component, which registers a new service, which replaces the Desktop service, without having to recompile OOo at all. In other words, you could install a package that could be installed by the user using the pkgchk command. (pkgchk.exe for systems infected with Windows.)

It may be necessary to write such a component in C++ because it may be necessary to access the VCL and SAL which does not appear to really be very accessible via. the API. Fortunantly, some people here (see the Code Snippets section) have begun posting some examples of how to work with OOo from C++.
