What is Simple API?
Simple API, also called Simple Java API for ODF, is a sub-project of ODF Toolkit Union. This is an **easy-to-use**, **high-level** Java API for creating, modifying and extracting data from [Open Document Format (ODF)][3] documents. It is written in pure Java and does not require users to install any document editor on their systems. It is a high level abstraction of the lower-level [ODFDOM API][4].
What can I do with Simple API?
We provide lots of interesting demos to show the ability of Simple API. You can see the [demo page][5].
How do I get started?
Firstly, you can see the [getting started guide][6].
Secondly, we recommend [cookbook][7] and [demo][8]. Both of them supply lots of sample code.
Lastly, please reference the newest [javadoc][9], which supplies more details of Simple API.
