SharePoint for Open Office

The SharePoint Server of Microsoft provides a single workspace for teams to organize documents and participate in discussions. This does not only work with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office formats, but also with Open Office and the OpenDocument file format ODF.

The Sun Connector for SharePoint Server connects OpenOffice.org and the paid version StarOffice to the Microsoft SharePoint platform.

The Extension allows users to search, browse, edit or check-in/out documents that are stored in the SharePoint Server. It also extends the server front end to load documents with OpenOffice.org and enables the SharePoint Server to search within ODF documents.

The new release 1.1 is supporting both the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) and the Windows SharePoint Services (WSS 3.0).

Note: this software is provided by SUN and is independent from SPTools. This connector is used to connect OpenOffice and SharePpoint, where SPTools is used to connect SharePoint and TYPO3.
