Today I'm launching a new project: Joeffice.

Joeffice will be the first open source office suite written in Java™.

The goals:

  • Demonstration that it's possible to write an office in Java in 30 days
  • It should be a great open source project to participate in
  • It should be one of the open source project with the most potential

The concepts:

  • Clean code
  • No hard coded English in the UI
  • Reuse existing libraries
  • 1 video a day for 30 days on how to develop it

The advantages:

  • Written in Java™
  • Released under the Apache License 2.0
  • The same version will work online and offline
  • Tabs and docking windows

And now the presentation of the project:

The video is also available in Full HD on YouTube
