WORD 2010 Add-in written in JAVA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to write a custom WORD 2010 Add-In using JAVA.  But, my understanding is that most of the WORD Object methods are not accessible to JAVA, is this correct??  So do I need to use C++ or C#??

  • Hi billwa992,

    You are right, we cannot use Java to write Add-In for Word. We usually use C#,C++ or VB .NET in VS to build that which
    provides the project type like AddIn or Template. Through that, we can achieve what we need quickly.
    Here is a sample about Writing an MS Word AddIn

    Also a link where you can download AddIn samples in Word, Excel, Outlook etc. in C#, C++, VB freely   (All-In-One-Code Framework   Office)
    It provides the information of how to create a Word AddIn step by step.

    And for deployment of AddIn, you can refer to Mary Lee's blog
    Hope they will be helpful.

    Best Regards,
    Amy Li
