I just installed OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 for OS X but it doesn't appear that the officebean.jar is included in the latest release. Is the OfficeBean not supported in this version? Will it be?

OfficeBean is not supported in this release and is not scheduled to be implemented in any forseeable X11 release. The engineering effort to make it function is quite difficult and no one has stepped up to the plate to implement it. Lack of manpower...lack of interest...and lack of end-user requests for it are to blame. More people are interested in blue buttons then in the officebean Wink

now that NeoOffice doesn't require X11 is there any chance the OfficeBean may get implemented? I have no idea what it would take to accomplish that.

The issue with the OfficeBean is not X11, but Mac OS X. As a result, it is not any easier to implement it in NeoOffice/J than it is in OOo X11.

The reason that the OfficeBean is so difficult to implement is that the OfficeBean code assumes that one process can draw to another process' windows. This is true on Windows and most Unix platforms. However, on Mac OS X, the drawing surface of a window is private to the process that owns it.

So, to implement requires extensive redesign of the OfficeBean to work around this hurdle.

If we were interested in rewriting the OfficeBean for OS X, where would we start? What technologies would we have to understand?
