Apache Velocity Project

Apache Velocity Project About Velocity

Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use a simple yet powerful template language to reference objects defined in Java code.

When Velocity is used for web development, Web designers can work in parallel with Java programmers to develop web sites according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that web page designers can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java code from the web pages, making the web site more maintainable over its lifespan and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages (JSPs) or PHP.

OpenOffice.org XML & XSLT (Part 3)

OpenOffice.org XML & XSLT

OpenOffice.org 2 uses an XML format called the OpenDocument Format (ODF).

To view the raw ODF XML just unzip yourdoc.odt then view the file content.xml.

Because ODF is XML it 'should' be easy to use XLST to convert it to any other markup language such as WritingML !
