Mission Statement

The ODF Toolkit is a set of Java modules that allow programmatic creation, scanning and manipulation of Open Document Format, which is being developed under OASIS (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents. Unlike other approaches which rely on runtime manipulation of heavy-weight editors via an automation interface, the ODF Toolkit is lightweight and ideal for server use.

Components of the ODF Toolkit (Java)

  1. Software access to ODF is achievable by ODFDOM. With 0.10.0 the basics of collaboration functionality - the change/operation concept were added.

  2. ODF Conformance can be tested via the ODF Validator. Offered as command-line tool (executable JAR) or server component - via Web application archive (WAR) like here.

  3. XSL Transformation loading the ODF XML from the zipped ODF can take the zipped ODF as source using the ODF XSLT Runner.
    This functionality is also available from ANT using our ANT task

  4. Creating Software Artefacts from the ODF grammar is possible via the generator project
