    Default Using openoffice in java application

    Hi!
    Because of my final degree project I have to integrate an openoffice window into my Java application. I don't know how to look for information about this topic. So, if anyone has tried something similar and can help me... The idea is to put in the same window a webcam and the openoffice suite so you can show a power point presentation while the people see your face.

    I hope this isn't an impossible thing to do....

    Thanks a lot.

    Basically you are looking to display an image as a mirror of your desktop? First thing about how to integrate a web-cam in a Java container. Basically it's about video streaming in Java. This doc may be helpful to you.

    Thanks for the link
    What I want to do it's a kind of videoconference tool which can open and show files and, at the same time, video.
    I've started with the files part and I can't find much information about that. The only things I've found are this... and this... (I can't pos links yet, lol) but I don't know where to start.
    I think I've choosen a very difficult thing to do, lol :D

    Thanks ;)


    PS: The first link is something about the openoffice framework and the second one is in the oooforums.

    Ya, actually the things you have to do here is too much. Not easy actually. ;)

    Anyway, if I got you correct you want to have a two parts of the application. Say two windows. Through one of them you should see the video of the other windows' content. And also same thing should be seen by the other party.

    First think about how to do the streaming on the same side, I mean your side. In other words, try render the same content on one window from the other through a video stream. Because that's what you want to send to the other side as well.

    Did you read those links you are talking about in your last post? What you have gathered from there.

    Hi again!
    I'm sorry for taking so much time to answer but I'm very busy now.
    On those links I've seen how to embed openoffice in a java's awt panel. I don't know yet if that will work because I didn't try.
    On november I'll take this project seriously, when I come back from Argentina.
    Now I'm just collecting information :D
    Thanks for your advice on how to manage the video ;)
