reading / writing OpenOffice files.

I am developing an application that will produce an OpenOffice document. Hopefully even read templates later on but that is for later.

So I am not sure how to do the document creation. I have been searching for specs of the file format OpenOffice uses, and found some interesting stuff about the xml structures. Sort of the developers guide to OpenOffice files formats.

Do anyone know of a 3rd party library that creates and manipulates OpenOffice files?
I am very reluctant to start messing in the OpenOffice source, and not very keen on writing something that someone else already has.

Or do you have any other ideas??

If you want to put data into an openoffice database might be the place to start. Related linuxworld story

You could ask at oooforum,
people are asking about similar things in the macros and API forum.
