OpenOffice.org Extension Development with Eclipse (ooeclipse)

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…)

flattermann.net becomes beer-ware ;-)

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

As we all know, getting some monetary appreciation for your (open source) work is not easy.

Everybody likes to use open source software / projects /content, but most people are not willing to contribute to these project.

Let’s take a look at flattermann.net. My main open source projects at the moment are Hattrick Organizer (aYcon and I are the only developers for HO1), OpenTableTrick (it’s just me) and research for Hattrick.org (I did create the new rating prediction and the new training speed prediction formulas).

  • Hattrick Organizer is by far the most popular manager assistant for Hattrick.org (we have around 100.000 downloads per month)
  • OpenTableTrick was downloaded more than 2.200 times since its release at christmas 2008
  • The (rating/training) prediction formulas that I’ve created are the most accurate formulas for Hattrick.org (as far as I know), they are incorporated in many other Hattrick.org tools

This blog has a donate button for some time, but until now, nobody has donated a single cent.

I’ve also tried to get some revenue by adding Google ads to the page, but (of course) nobody clicks on these ads. Google does not pay anything for just showing the ads, only for clicks on them.

To be honest, I do not click on ads on other sites either and I also have AdBlock plus installed. ;-)

Nevertheless, I spend a nice amount of time for these open source projects, so it’s a little bit disappointing… I don’t want to get rich with open source projects, but it would be nice if I could pay the server rent or my Hattrick.org supportership with donations.

Therefore, I’ve added a new way to support me:

You can now buy me a beer!

At the end of every post, there is now a “Buy me a beer” button. If you like to easy my pain, then use it and buy me one. :-)

Alternatively, I do also accept donations for coffee or cigarettes, the programmer’s favourite “food”. ;-)

New training speed tools for Hattrick.org (Update 2009-04-02)

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

hts_kurdyThere are two three new online training speed tools for Hattrick.org based on my training speed formula research.

The formula is based on the datasets uploaded by the Hattrick Organizer users using the HO feedback plugin.

Hattrick Organizer uses this training speed formula since version 1.422.
