                            Apache ODF Toolkit  
            <http://incubator.apache.org/odftoolkit/index.html>
        
====================================================================================

The Apache ODF Toolkit (incuating) is a set of Java modules that allow programmatic 
creation, scanning and manipulation of Open Document Format (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.
It's an incubator project of the Apache Software Foundation <http://www.apache.org/>.

The ODF Toolkit consists of four subcomponents:

1. ODFDOM (odfdom-java-*.jar) 
    This is an Open Document Format (ODF) framework. Its purpose is to provide 
    an easy, common way to create, access and manipulate ODF files, without 
    requiring detailed knowledge of the ODF specification. It is designed to 
    provide the ODF developer community with an easy, lightweight programming API 
    portable to any object-oriented language.
    
2. Simple API (simple-odf-*.jar)
    The Simple Java API for ODF is an easy-to-use, high-level Java API 
    for creating, modifying and extracting data from ODF 1.2 documents.
    It is written in pure Java and does not require that you install any
    document editor on your system. The Simple Java API for ODF is a high
    level abstraction of the lower-level ODFDOM API

3. ODF Validator (odfvalidator-*.war)
    This is a tool that validates Open Document Format (ODF) files and checks them
    for conformance according to the ODF Standard. ODF Validator is available as an 
    online service and as a command line tool. This page primarily describes the 
    command line tool. Please visit web page:
       http://incubator.apache.org/odftoolkit/conformance/ODFValidator.html
    for details regarding the online tool.

4. ODF XSLT Runner(xslt-runner-*.jar, xslt-runner-task-*.jar)
    ODF XSLT Runner is a small Java application that allows you to apply XSLT 
    stylesheets to XML streams included in ODF packages without extracting them 
    from the package. It can be used from the command line. A driver to use it 
    within an Ant build file, ODF XSLT Runner Task, is also available.


Getting Started
===============

The ODF Toolkit is based on Java 5 and uses the Maven 2 <http://maven.apache.org/>
build system. To build ODF Toolkit, use the following command in this directory:

    mvn clean install

The simplest way to use these modules are just put the jars files in your classpath
directly. If you are not using maven you can see the versions of the major components for
your release in CHANGES.txt.
