News from maven-ooo-plugin
The maven-ooo-plugin is now nearly working. mvn package generates now an OpenOffice plugin with .oxt suffix. But not always. It is hard to find the reason why the registration of the plugin can fail.

As I learned today one reason for an can be:
  • an incomplete classpath entry in the generated manifest file,
  • a missing __writeRegistryServiceInfo or
  • a missing __getComponentFactory method in a Java component
Unfortunately you get not really a hint form OpenOffice if the registration of a plugin fails. For more info you can read the OpenOffice forum.
