> 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 anything
> -- 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 
> [1]
> [2]
> [3]
> [4]
