Java developer builds Office in 30 days
Microsoft might be a little spooked after a Java developer announced that he knocked up a basic open source office suite that runs on multiple OSes in just 30 days.
Anthony Goubard has created Joeffice which works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux as well as in browsers.
It is a basic package which includes a word processor, spreadsheet program, presentation program and database software.
It was built using NetBeans and uses many popular open source Java libraries, Goubard said.
He has been showing users how he did it on Youtube and he has released his alpha version already.
His outfit, Japplis, launched the suite, which is available under an Apache 2.0 licence. This allows companies to change and redistribute the code internally without having to share the new code publicly, he said.
Goubard hopes to make the suite available on mobile platforms and possibly the Raspberry Pi credit-card size PC.
It is not really meant to be as advanced as Vole's office, or LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org but is designed for companies with specific needs such as obtaining data from a Java library, he said.
If all goes well, Goubard aims to release a full version of the suite next year.
