| The O3OSpaces server is a J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) application,
| built on top of Apache Tomcat and the PostgreSQL database server. The
| web client uses AJAX, while the Assistant client program is a Java Web
| Start application.
| Besides StarOffice and OpenOffice.org, companies can use O3Spaces with
| Microsoft Office documents. "While O3Spaces is developed for use with
| OpenOffice.org/StarOffice, it can handle Microsoft Office documents
| equally well," stated O3Spaces B.V. CEO Rob Mentink. "This is crucial
| for companies and users that work in mixed environments."
Hope it helps...
