How to create a OOo Java Extension using Eclipse as IDE
Recently, I tried to create an OpenOffice.org Extension (.oxt) with Java. I’m using Eclipse as Java IDE for all my projects, so I wanted to use Eclipse for this task as well.
There is an Eclipse plugin to help you with this task, but there are come caveats. The old versions of this plugin do not work with the current OpenOffice.org version (3.0+).
You will probably get an error message when trying to specify the SDK (“SDK version has to be at least 2.0.4″) or the OOo location (“Invalid OOo path”) in the plugin.
Eventually, after some time searching the web, I found a working solution! (more…)If you like my work, buy me a beer. (Suggested: 3€ for a beer, or more for more beer ;-) )
