I need to write an application, that interacts with OpenOffice.org Writer. No need to make a OOo-Component of it, just a small java-application.
- The app is reading data from a MySQL-DB.
- The data is then input into a circular letter in Writer.
- Then, the user is allowed to customize the content of the letter, as he pleases.
- When he is finished, the document should be saved (best in pdf-format) in a certain dir with a given filename.
Is this doable using Java/UNO?
I have made the best learning experiences, when looking at example code. Are there any examples for Java using UNO to open writer-documents or anything like that?
Most tutorials I found focused on extending OOo using UNO, but I'd rather like to control OOo with another Java-App.
