Hello All,

Need a tutorial/help to get started on writing openoffice plugin/extension. Essentially, I would like to do the following in my plugin.

1. Open a file
2. Verify and convert the file from a format (for instance, decode a custom encoded file). If needed prompt the user for decode key with a dialog screen.
3. After editing, save with custom encoding.

I intend to use Java as programming language. I have referred to wiki at https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/JavaEclipseTuto

But, I have no clue where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A query in the web for, e.g.

LibreOffice develop extension
OpenOffice develop extension

may help to do a first step.

Chapter 4 of the Developer's Guide has information on writing extensions.
