Hi @alemser,

Good question. As most of LO is written in C++, I don't think that it would be possible to run that code directly inside a Java Applet.

Or do you mean that you'd like to run LO on a server and then have a client-side interface connect to the instance running on the server (ala VNC) ? You might be interested in the preliminary tests of using LO in a web browser. That code is not ready for production use, but if you are interested in contributing to further development of such a feature, please talk with the developers. Thanks!

Even if it were possible to run LO in a Java Applet, Java Applets aren't permitted to access anything on your hard drive or devices, so you wouldn't be able to print or save files or do a bunch of other things that office suites need to do.
