Amsterdam, The Netherlands (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
Japplis, a company based in Amsterdam, has released Joeffice, the first open source office suite written in Java.
The office suite contains a word processor, a spreadsheet software, a presentation software, a database editor and a drawing viewer.
Joeffice works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It also works online in the browser.
Joeffice is released under the Apache license 2.0 which makes it possible for companies to change the code and redistribute it internally without having the need to share the modified code.
The software is written in Java, one of the most popular development language with million of developers and a very active open source community. Joeffice itself is based on multiple widely used open source Java libraries.
Compared to other office suites, Joeffice has a tab and docking system when opening multiple documents. It also can be installed online and it has a plug-in system where third party plug-ins could be downloaded and installed.
This first release is an alpha release, meaning that not all features are supported. It is first targeted at companies with special needs in an office suite such as getting data from a Java library and at developers who would like to improve the software.
