Simple Java API for ODF

Packages introduction

The design principle is "make users easily to locate the functions they want".

Document methods

For each frequently used document type, there is a class under package "org.odftoolkit.simple" to provide high level methods to manipulate this kind of documents.

Specific methods for different mimetype

For each frequently used mimetype, their is a package to contain the high level methods for this kind of mimetype, such as org.odftoolkit.simple.text and org.odftoolkit.simple.presentation. The packages for different mimetype contain:

  • The frequently used features functions, such as org.odftoolkit.simpleodf.chart will contain the function related with chart, org.odftoolkit.simpleodf.text will contain the function related with text content.
  • Specific functions for different mimetypes, for example, the navigation API is put in package "org.odftoolkit.simpleodf.text.search".

Features methods

there are some packages defined for important common features available for all kinds of documents, such as table, meta and style. The packages for common features will contain the methods for specific features.

Common methods

There is another package named "org.odftoolkit.simpleodf.common", which contains functions that are not related with a specific document type nor a specific feature. For example, the text extractor functions are put in this package.
