Open-Source Software Community project to Help Grow Adoption, Community and Software Innovation

The ODF Toolkit will use an initial software code contribution from
Sun to provide developers with an easy-to-use Application Programming
Interface (API) for reading, writing and manipulating ODF documents
while accelerating additional application development. One part of
the initial code contribution is an ODF Validator, a tool that
validates OpenDocument files and checks certain conformance criteria.
Capitalizing on the open, elegant nature of ODF, the Toolkit targets
developers who want to create new applications and solutions ranging
from content management, business workflows and activities to
Web-based document solutions.
