The Open Office Server Daemon

( You can find more informations in the README file or the FAQ )
This daemon controls a pool of 'anonymous' office instances (workers).
The workers can be used as backend for java/python/C++ batch
processes for document conversion, mail merges, etc... You don't need to rewrite your current scripts,
a client connects to a daemon-controlled office just as if would connect to a normal office.
The daemon ensures, that only one client at a time is connected to one openoffice instance. Workers
get restarted after a certain amount of uses or after office crashes.
A client can connect to a daemon as if it would connect to a normal 'non-daemoned' Open office server,
so you don't need to adapt your code/scripts.
The daemon is based on the oood daemon written in python by
Joerg Budischewski that you can find at
OpenOffice.org. The current daemon is written in Java.
