Sun, IBM launch ODF tools project

By   |  November 6, 2008

IBM and Sun Microsystems yesterday released the OpenDocument Format (ODF) Toolkit Union, a new open-source software community project to make it easier for developers to use and develop ODF applications.

Sun will provide an initial software code contribution to provide developers with an easy-to-use application programming interface for reading, writing and manipulating ODF documents while accelerating additional application development.

The ODF Toolkit also provides a home for libraries that make the development of applications that support ODF easier as well as a source for tools that process ODF or check ODF conformance.

The ODF Toolkit Project website says:

The range of projects that are available in the ODF Toolkit goes from small tools that simplify using ODF in the software development process, over an ODF validation tool up to large ODF Java and .NET libraries that can be used within other projects. And this is just the start. Developers are invited to freely host their open source ODF libraries and tools within the ODF Toolkit, to join the existing projects, and to collaborate with ODF developers everywhere.

One part of the initial code contribution is an ODF Validator, a tool that validates OpenDocument files and checks certain conformance criteria. The toolkit is also expected to help developers that want to create new applications and solutions ranging from content management, business workflows and activities to Web-based document solutions.

    impossibile… 60 pages nondisclosure agreement.. 1000 Dollar fee from your credit card..
    Working in the ODF community: no fees, no hassels, quick help, great fun …! :-)
