Juergen Schmidt created COMDEV-78:

             Summary: [GSoC] CMIS Universal Contet Provider (UCP) for Apache OpenOffice
                 Key: COMDEV-78
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Juergen Schmidt

Apache OpenOffice is the leading open source desktop office suite. Our most recent release
has had over 40 million downloads. 

OpenOffice used internally a universal content broker [1] to provide access on file contents.
It's a very generic concept and it can be extended by providing additional content providers
(UCP) [2]. Such a UCP can be provided as an optional extension or bundled directly with the
office. It doesn't matter for the scope of this project and the main idea is to implement
a new UCP for accessing files in a content management system supporting the OASIS standard
CMIS [3].

The scope of this project is:
1. Implement a new CMIS UCP using the Apache Chemistry library [4]
2. Implement a new sidebar panel to provide an easy navigation of CMIS supporting CMS and
the support of some basic CMS typical functions like check-in, check-put of documents, open
and editing of files, versioning etc.

Skills needed:
-- Java programming ("Core Java"), good working knowledge, but don't need to be a guru or

-- open minded to learn something new, the office API and some basic concepts regarding the
underlying component technology

-- open to have fun with one of the biggest open source projects
