In my organization we have some applications built with oracle forms which generate .doc and .xls documents, as we are migrating to LibreOffice we are trying to remove the office suite from the pc's but the users with these applications can't make the switch.

the problem is that oracle forms generates the documents in the client using ole2 calls ( to the office suite through a component called webutil (

ole2 is well supported by libreoffice so in theory the connection from oracle forms to libreoffice through webutil is possible:

the problem is that it seems that the webutil component was developed only with the microsoft office suite in mindand there is not guarantee to it functioning well with other suites:

has anybody faced this problem before? is possible to make libreoffice work with webutil or there is another similar component already developed with the same funcionality?
