SWING Integrator 5 Provides Better Ties between Lotus Notes and OpenOffice

The new release adds OpenOffice integration with IBM Lotus Notes applications.

November 29, 2006 – SWING Software announces today the release of SWING Integrator 5 – an Office integration toolkit for Lotus Notes and Domino developers. The new release adds OpenOffice integration with IBM Lotus Notes applications.

SWING Integrator 5 lets Lotus developers integrate MS Office Word and Excel, or OpenOffice Write and Calc to their own Lotus Notes solutions. 1,000s of developers have been using SWING Integrator for:

  • Producing highly formatted documents with Notes data
  • Carefree in-place editing of attachments (both Notes and Web)
  • Updating Notes fields from Office documents (Field Exchange)
  • PDF conversion
  • Mail merge letters and labels
  • Reporting, charting and data analysis
  • Advanced document automation

“We have added OpenOffice support in response to strong market demand,” said David Jakelic, CEO of SWING Software. “Now our customers can choose between MS Office and OpenOffice suites for their Lotus Notes collaborative solutions.”

SWING Integrator does not require separate installation. Developers just plug it into their application, and add a single line of code for initialization.

As a result, users benefit from advanced document authoring, formatting, accurate printing, reporting and data analysis. Developers extend their Lotus solutions by adding new Office templates, or enable users to do so.

Open design elements and comprehensive API are provided for easy customization and localization. The look-and-feel can be adjusted or changed to comply with specific application standards.

SWING Integrator fits various usage scenarios, such as purchase approvals, invoicing, sales proposal automation, contract authoring, document libraries, personalized serial letters, and data analysis. For instance, ABB Group uses SWING Integrator for its Financial Planning System, Sigma-Aldrich for a Performance Appraisal System, and Schindler Group for PDF conversion and delivery.
