The ODF Toolkit
The ODF Toolkit 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.
The ODF Toolkit consists of four subcomponents:
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.
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
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 http://odftoolkit.org/conformance/ODFValidator.html for details regarding the online tool.
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.
The ODF Toolkit is based on Java 8 and uses the Maven 3 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.
